Whatcom Events will present Snowshoe Fest 2012 on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Heather Meadows in the Mount Baker Ski Area.
Activities include snowshoe races for adults and children, which cost $5 for people 12 years old and up and are free for children. There will also be treasure hunts, prizes, snow cave-making demos, free snacks and drinks, raffles, avalanche awareness instruction, games and activities for all ages.
Snowshoe Fest will also include free snowshoe rentals provided by REI. All participants who dress in St. Patrick’s Day spirit will be entered in a special raffle.
Various Bellingham outdoor businesses will have booths set up, and all will donate items as raffle prizes. Proceeds from the event will go toward a yet-to-be-determined local nonprofit.
