This weekend should go down as “the one where we played in the snow” when we look back on this winter, so make plans to make the most of it now.
Load up on hot cocoa, mini marshmallows and pull out all the cozy blankets as you prepare for this weekend full of epic snow play mixed in with fabulous family fun thanks to a growing-by-the-week list of events happening for Champaign-Urbana area families
We don’t know if it is something about the season, the fact that we’ve been at this for nearly a year, OR the sheer fact that Champaign-Urbana simply rocks… but whatever the reason, there are SO many events happening in town this weekend for you to consider joining. The events currently on our event calendar can be described in three general buckets:
- virtual events (such as ones held on Zoom)
- in-person events (growing in number with every week that goes by)
- hybrid events, such as ones where you drive-through or pick up supplies to do an activity at home on your own or on a virtual platform
We’re seeing more and more events pop up as local organizations and businesses pivot (yes, we’re tired of that word, too but it’s truly what’s happening) and get creative.
