Gallia Winterfest 2022

mom and three childrenOver 1,200 community members and families enjoyed Gallia Winterfest in the Gallipolis City Park on February 19. Not only did the event draw local families; many registrants were from Mason, Jackson, Meigs, and Lawrence counties.  Participants enjoyed family time as they embarked on a scavenger hunt, locating the beautiful ice sculptures provided by Tyson Whistler. In addition, there was a live ice sculpture demonstration, ice skating, curling, and a hockey shoot. The younger participants enjoyed meeting Olaf the snowman, embarking on a train ride, and receiving a stuffed penguin or a “Winterfest bear.” Free hot chocolate and snow cones were provided, and each family received a “chill” bag. The event provided fun for all ages and fostered family engagement.  All activities were sponsored by the Gallia-Vinton ESC, Gallia County Job & Family Services, Gallia County Commissioners, and the City of Gallipolis. A special thanks to the ESC staff and the afterschool staff who helped the event run smoothly. For more photos of the event visit any of our social media pages!
