Vinterfest adds dancers

Scandia’s annual celebration of winter this Saturday will feature something new: two performances by the Pleasant Valley Cloggers.

The community sliding and skating party will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Community Center.

The chili cook-off, from 2 to 3:30 p.m., includes a people’s choice category. Also indoors will be a bake sale and local vendor tables.

The Pleasant Valley Cloggers will perform at 1:30 and 3 p.m.

Bring your skates: The Wojtowicz Skating Park  is located adjacent to the Community Center.

Bring your sleds: Across the road from the skating rink, Elim Lutheran Church offers a steep, snow-covered sliding hill.

Bring your tools: The snow sculpture contest invites teams of up to six people to compete for cash.

A bonfire with marshmallows will be set up.
