Based on fantastic turnout these past couple years, the Winterfest committee has decided to build Winterfest to be even more fun this year!

Saturday, February 6th, 2016 marks the fourth annual McLeod for Tomorrow Winterfest event at the McLeod County Fairgrounds. The event will begin at 10am, and all are welcomed to stop by and enjoy the fun any time until 4pm. Admission is free, and food and beverages are available for a nominal cost, benefitting McLeod for Tomorrow events and leadership program.

Three of this year’s new attractions are Ruth Kinkade and her alpacas from Abbey Alpacas, Ridgewater’s race car simulation experience, a snow raceway course for remote-control vehicles (bring your own and try your skill!), and a chance to meet the Frozen characters! The free, family-oriented event once again includes attractions such as a dog sled team providing rides around the fairgrounds, snow mobile rides, a climbing wall, face painting, fat tire snow bikes, snow shoes, sledding hill, and an ice rink for those bringing their own skates or boots. This event proves just how fun winter can be, regardless of the temperature outside or snow on the ground.

McLeod for Tomorrow is always looking for volunteers to assist with final day preparations. If you are interested in assisting with time, effort and/or prize donations, please contact us at
