With little snow or freezing temperatures in the forecast for the foreseeable future, those new sleds and skates may have to stay in the closet for a little while. Fortunately for area residents, the Port Huron Parks & Recreation Department has some activities lined up to keep families busy despite the lack of winter wonderland.
First up is the Blizzard Bash, an indoor snowball fight, for ages five to 14 that is set to be held January 3. Registration is required, but the event is free to residents, and it includes the making of indoor “snow”. The Parks and Recreation Department is also taking registrations for winter programs that start once school is back in session. Offerings include fencing for ages 12 and older where participants can learn the ancient art, and there is also Drums Alive, an exercise class for ages 16 and older.
Homeschool and preschool tennis classes start in January as well as beginner karate classes for kids who might be going a little stir crazy without snow to play in. Also starting in January are yoga classes and a new offering, the art of a traditional dance of Thailand. You can sign up online or call the Port Huron Parks and Recreation Department for more information on any of these programs and offerings at 810-984-9760.
