Even without snow, this brand new event will take place on Saturday, February 18 from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. in the Historic Village with a combination of historic and modern day activities with a winter theme.

 “While we were hoping for snow and a frozen lake, we’re still excited about all we have planned for our new Frozen in Time event this weekend,” shared Kim Krieger, PR/Media Relations. “If you’re looking for a fun afternoon, plan to stop by Saturday to meet our farm animals, explore a straw maze, play with old-fashioned toys in the Grime Home, meet Elsa from the movie Frozen and so much more!”
