More snow in the weekend forecast may make some Iowans grumble after a hard first half of winter, but a group in north-central Iowa is praising the season. Charlie Bray, a naturalist with the Wright County Conservation Department, say the 19th annual Winterfest will be held Saturday at Lake Cornelia Park near Clarion.

“We have a lot of activities to celebrate this winter we’re having,” Bray says. “We’re going to have horse-drawn sleigh rides, activities on the ice like kite flying and activities on the snow like snow skiing and snow shoeing.”

Winterfest will be held from 11 A.M. to 3 P.M. at the park northeast of Clarion. For more information, call the Conservation Department at (515) 532-3185.
