UW-Superior Winterfest Returns

Posted at: 12/05/2012 8:45 AM

After a year hiatus, the University of Wisconsin-Superior is bringing back the school's annual Winterfest.

This year's event takes place Thursday from 5 p.m.  to 8 p.m. It will be held at the Marchovich Wellness Center on the UW-Superior campus. Free parking will be available in university lots.

Allie Kozisek was a former lead student for Winterfest. And Jesse West is the lead student for this year's event. They stopped by Good Morning Northland Wednesday to talk about Winterfest.

Kozisek said Winterfest is a family event the university has been putting on for the last five years, except last year. She also said it is a way for UW-Superior to give back to the community.

This year, children can visit Santa Claus. They can also enjoy inflatable games, a climbing wall, cookie decorating and much more.

Also this year, the everyone can bring a new or gently used children's book to donate to the Little Blue Bookshelf project. West said the Little Blue Bookshelf is like a little free check-out library for kids in Superior.
