Everyone needs a diversion from the inversion, according to Julie Hollist, executive director of the Cache Valley Visitors Bureau. Hollist says there is a chance to celebrate winter this week with dozens of indoor and outdoor events for all ages.
On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Thursday, Hollist said Winterfest has expanded this year to five days and brings together a variety of organizations. She said on Thursday from 5:30-8:30 p.m. the Riverwoods Conference Center will present its first-ever “Soup-4-Support” where about a dozen local restaurants will donate soups, baked goods and desserts.
“Savannah’s Barbeque, Herm’s Inn, Coppermill, Callaway’s, Cafe Ibis, Goucho Grill, Jack’s Pizza Oven, Old Grist Mill, Great Harvest, Crumb Brothers, Macey’s, all sorts of different places are going to (be there),” Hollist said. “I just love that idea.
“You can go down there and have some soup. They really wanted to make it affordable for families and I think they’ve done a good job of doing that.”
She said proceeds will go to the Child and Family Support Center. The cost is just $5 per person or $20 per family. Hollist said there are many other exciting activities planned during Winterfest including sleighrides to see the elk at Hardware Ranch and skiing and snowboarding at Beaver Mountain.
