Celebrating winter!

This little arctic blast may take you off two wheels for a few days, but it definitely doesn’t take you off the Back Roads and Beaches Multi-Sport Route. Discover something exciting along the BRaB this winter.

With our temps in the twenties this weekend, it’s fitting for the Lorain County Metro Parks annual Winter Days festival to be held Saturday (Jan 26th) from 10 to 4 at the Vermilion River Reservation. We don’t sit back and endure winter in north central Ohio, we celebrate it! And why not? It’s one of our four most beautiful seasons! So bundle up and enjoy the crisp winter air while taking in dog sled presentations, ice carving demonstrations, sleigh (carriage) rides, live music, a chili cook-off and be sure to BYOS – “bring your own sled” to cruise down their great sledding hill! You can warm up throughout the day in the Carriage Barn and purchase refreshments before you head back out for more.
Not seeing a big thaw in our future, we gear up for another cool event…the 5th Annual Ice-A-Fair to Remember on Saturday February 2ndfrom 11 to 4 in Downtown Vermilion. Cycle down Liberty and Main Streets, stroll or catch Lolly the Trolley and marvel at the sight of over 50 ice carvings, some carved on site!! Stop in the quaint shops and restaurants downtown to warm up and grab a bite to eat.

Excitement along the BRaB is waiting for you…don’t forget your camera!
