Baynes Lake Parks and Rec. Society held their second annual Winter Festival at the Glen Sandberg Park in Baynes Lake on February 23.

This year the event was bigger and better than ever with around 40 children and their families enjoying the fun.

With a donation from the local business, Koocanusa Campsite and Marina, the Parks and Rec. Society was able to purchase all the supplies needed to make this event a success. Children participated in a scavenger hunt, ‘snow snake’ finding, multiple relay races and a beautiful snowman pinata was mercilessly beaten for the treats inside. When asked if she was having fun, first grader Emilee French said, “I’m having so much fun I never want to leave”.
