Gurnee's Frosty Fest offers family fun
On Saturday, Jan. 11, Bittersweet Golf Course will turn into a winter wonderland for Frosty Fest.
This free community event will help festivalgoers embrace winter by meeting a dog sled team, enjoying interactive ice demonstrations and sculptures, taking horse-drawn sleigh rides, sledding, playing festive winter games and relaxing by the fire with s'mores and hot cocoa.
