Winter Days at Vermilion River Reservation Jam-packed with a multitude of fun, seasonal activities for all ages, Winter Days gives visitors the chance to truly celebrate all that a Northeast Ohio winter has to offer.

Among the variety of activities are ice carving demonstrations, horse-drawn carriage rides, live music, face painting, snowshoeing and the viewing of an ice harvesting display as well as ice harvesting demonstrations on the pond (ice conditions permitting).

Other spotlighted activities include hearth-side cooking demonstrations in Carriage Barn, a meet and greet with sled dogs and sled dog demonstrations and new this year, the chance to see live reindeer and learn about the habitats where these interesting creatures live in the wild.

Also new this year, historical re-enactors will be in the Benjamin Bacon House where they will be providing hands-on, interactive demonstrations about pioneer life during the winter season.

Visitors will be able to purchase cookies and hot beverages from the Friends of the Metro Parks as well as other food from food vendors.
