When it's even too cold for Frosty, Wheeling snowman event moves indoors
While Old Man Winter has left us plenty of material in recent weeks to build snowmen of all sizes, he didn't cooperate much when it came temperatures Sunday,
So with the mercury hovering around zero and wind chills far below that, the Wheeling Park District shifted its snowman-building event from outside at the Heritage Park Performance Pavilion to a cozier inside the Community Recreation Center, where young participants made crafts instead.
Natural lighting and sunny skies from windows offered a winter backdrop view.
"It's too cold for the little ones," said Francisco Plazola Jr., special events attendant for the park district. "We don't want to cancel the event, because with COVID, it's good to get out of the house."
