Waking up to a great outdoor weekend
space
The Antigo Daily Journal is predicting sunny skies and temperatures near 20 degrees for the annual Winter Fun and Wellness Day at Peaceful Valley Park.

Activities will get underway Sunday at 2 p.m. at Peaceful Valley Park.

On Friday organizers trimmed the broomball tournament from the schedule, but there will be plenty else for families to enjoy over a couple hours in the park.

Organizers advise families to dress warmly, even with the sun, since conditions could be breezy, leading to a bit of wind chill.

But hey, it’s February in northern Wisconsin after all.

This is a fun community event for families, kids and anyone looking to get out and enjoy some free winter activities with delicious food made by Aspirus Langlade Hospital, Sarah Repp, the city’s parks and recreation director, said, noting that the event is made possible by collaboration between the city,, Boys & Girls Club of Langlade County, Langlade County Economic Development Corporation and Aspirus Langlade Hospital.

Activities will include snow angels and snow sculptures, campfires with marshmallows for roasting, and in a nod to the Winter Olympics, ice skating, ice puck curling, and luging on the specially constructed sledding hill.

There will also be snow mini-golf, activities that can be used toward the Antigo school district’s 100-Mile Club tally and an opportunity to enjoy sleigh rides with some real horsepower provided by the Brandt family’s big Percherons, gentle giants of the equine world.

There’s no need to go outside the city limits to enjoy winter fun, Repp said. The skating rinks are in fine shape and the warming house is perfect for a quick trip inside. And in a new twist, the city’s big sledding hill is now illuminated between 5 and 9 p.m. The city also has groomed its cross-country ski trails, the single-track bike rail is open for snowshoeing and, for dog walkers, there are packed trails at the enclosed city dog park.

There’s much more on the weekend docket too, including:

—The Jack Lake Ski Fest, with registration this morning and racing at 9:30 a.m. at the Jack Lake ski trails, sponsored by the Elcho Area Silent Sports Club.

—downhill skiing at Kettlebowl today and Sunday, noon to 4 p.m. each day.

—the 44th annual White Lake Fishng Derby, which continues today until 4 p.m.

—and a slew of activities in the Pearson-Pickerel area, including pancakes this morning at the Pickerel Rescue Squad Station 2, the lunchtime Polar Bear jump-in outside of Sportsmen’s Lodge on Pickerel Lake and the annual chili ride-in from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Tombstone Pickerel Sno Club complex off Highway DD.
