Snofest is coming to Peterborough again from January 20th to the 26th.

Someone in your family may remember way back to 1976 when the first Snofest was held thanks to ParticipAction. 

ParticipACTION is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to encourage Canadians to sit less and move more. Peterborough took the challenge and has held the annual Snofest ever since.
