Green Bay Botanical Garden blooms with winter event


GREEN BAY - The cold weather didn't stop people from taking part in some winter fun this weekend.

The annual Winter Family Fun Festival took place on Saturday at the Green Bay Botanical Garden.

It had a fun little twist this year - everything was Olympic-inspired in honor of this year's Winter Olympics.

There was a dogsled presentation, a team ski event and people could even decorate medals.

Organizers say that even though it's winter, there's plenty to see at the Garden this time of year.

"Looking at all the different animal tracks that are in the snow we have lots of different animals that are out here also looking at the structures that are out here in the garden as well they're really pronounced during the winter time when its white and cold and it’s just a great place to snowshoe and hike in the winter." Eileen Wesener of the Green Bay Botanical Garden said.

Organizers say this is the second year for the event.
