Cold Front activities scheduled for Feb. 6-8 have been postponed due to dangerously cold weather, according to a news release from the city of Duluth Parks and Recreation.
According to a National Weather Service of Duluth report, the surrounding area is set to experience several days of bitter cold with dangerous wind chills. To ensure public safety, the following events have been rescheduled:
- The Yeti Hunt originally scheduled for Feb. 7 will now take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Feb. 13. Starting at 10 a.m., clues will be released hourly on the Duluth Parks MN Facebook page and Instagram to lead participants to the correct park. Participants must take a photo of or with the yeti and post it to social media to be entered into a drawing for prizes.
- Citywide snow-building extravaganza, originally scheduled for Feb. 8, will now take place on Feb. 14. Put your creativity and snow sculpting skills to the test in a local park. Share photos of creations on social media with the hashtag #ColdFront2021 to enter a drawing to win a prize.
Dog sledding appointments were made by a lottery and will be scheduled for those that were selected. Selected participants should check their email for more information.
The remaining events including the Winter Wonderland equipment pop-up, Agents of Discovery, Luminary Walk and BAE-front Valentine's Skate will be evaluated next week and any additional postponements will be announced then.
