The Marienville Winterfest has its roots in the snowmobile races held in that Forest County community 40 years ago. On Saturday, those days were remembered with a display of vintage snowmobiles.
The vintage sleds were just a part of the daylong activities at the Marienville Area Civic Association (MACA) building.
The activities included bingo games, a pie bake-off, a coloring contest, a snowflake-cutting contest, sky lanterns and a torchlight snowmobile ride.
“The Marienville Trailriders Club groomed the trails. The trails are in excellent condition,” said Roxanne Thornton, the treasurer for MACA.
Thornton said Winterfest has been a fixture on the calendar since 1973.
