The Arctic weather aside, there’s plenty about winter to celebrate – especially this coming Saturday, when Berkley Parks & Recreation presents Winterfest 2014.

Some of the activities include:

  • Winter Petting Farm
  • Snowman Building Contest
  • Children’s Crafts
  • Cookie Decorating
  • Bon Fire With S’mores
  • Turkey Bowling
  • Ice Sculptures
  • Carnival Games
  • Broomball
  • Kickball
  • Open Skating
  • Berkley Bruins Hockey
  • Cake Walk
  • Berkley Youth Hockey Activities (On Ice - Learn to Play; Off Ice - Shooting Targets)

Before the games and other activities get started at noon, the Berkley Youth Hockey Association is sponsoring a “Try Hockey for Free Day” from 9-11:30 a.m. for children ages 4-10 who would like to try skating and experience the game of hockey.

There’s no fee to take part.

Coaches, players and parents from Berkley Youth Hockey and Berkley High School hockey will be on hand to help equip kids and teach them to play the game.  Experienced skaters may also attend if they have an interest in learning hockey.
