Five Counties Children’s Centre is hosting its Winterfest 2023 ‘fun’draiser in February with a number of virtual events and the return of in-person activities (albeit smaller in scale). In Kawartha Lakes, Winterfest is set to take place on Sunday, Feb. 19, from 10 am to 2 pm at Lindsay Square Mall (401 Kent St. W.). The event features fun, family-friendly events, including games, crafts, scavenger hunt, hockey shootout, indoor floor curling, music, raffle, giant lego and more. Sparky the fire dog will also make a special appearance. 

“If you suffer from the winter blahs, Winterfest 2023 is a great way to embrace the season. We’re really pleased to be able to gather in-person again, and encourage everyone to join us on Sunday of the Family Day long weekend at Lindsay Square,” says Scott Pepin, CEO of Five Counties Children’s Centre. “By taking part in Winterfest, you can help support the life-changing work provided by Five Counties to help kids with physical, communication and development needs in our communities.” 

Canadian Tire stores in Lindsay, Fenelon Falls, Peterborough, Cobourg and Campbellford return as Winterfest’s lead sponsor in 2023. 

There are many parts to Winterfest 2023, including:

In 2022, Winterfest raised nearly $20,000 to support the programs and services provided by Five Counties to more than 6,000 children/youth in the region, including the Kawartha Lakes.
