Minnesotans embrace the cold like no one else. For proof, look no further than Bloomington Parks and Recreation’s annual Winter Fete celebration, which transforms the city into a cold-weather fun zone the week of January 15 – 23. Over the years, Winter Fete has featured professional ski jumping competitions, ice fishing demonstration, snowshoeing excursions, fat-tire bike races and much more. There will be plenty of activities for everyone. For the full schedule of free (unless otherwise noted) and exciting events happening all week, visit blm.mn/winter-fete or call Parks and Recreation at 952-563-8877.
