After the kind of winter we have experienced so far this year it is going to take something extra special to get people of all ages to attend anything with the word “shiver” in it, but that's just what ShiverFest has - something extra special!

After the kind of winter we have experienced so far this year it is going to take something extra special to get people of all ages to attend anything with the word “shiver” in it, but that’s just what ShiverFest has - something extra special!

The events are designed to encourage those who may be suffering from cabin fever to get out into the fresh air and enjoy some fun activities. Although events began this past weekend with the Pond Hockey and ND Corn Hole Tournaments there are plenty of events ahead this week.

Thursday, Feb. 15 Starting at 4:30 p.m. in the Lake Region Public Library they will be making Snow Slime and hot cocoa. This event sounds like it may be a partly indoor, partly outdoor event. Either way an adult or older sibling must accompany children 8 years of age or younger. Call 662-2220 to pre-register to make sure they have enough materials for your child.
