The Vita and Area Winter Festival returns this Saturday and Sunday.


Cold weather will keep snow from turning to mush this weekend but there will still be plenty of mushing as sled dog races are showcased at the Vita and Area Winter Festival, which returns for another year this weekend.

Saturday’s activities include a pancake breakfast, a snowmobile show and shine, curling, 3 on 3 hockey tournament, cribbage tournament, borscht competition, glo curling, fireworks and more.

Sunday will feature stick curling, skating, bingo, and various kids’ activities.

Sled dog races, a highlight of the event, will be held at various times in the morning and afternoon on Saturday and Sunday in a field west of Vita.

More general information about the festival can be provided by calling 204-712-5442.
