Second Annual Food Drive
Again this year, the Winter Festival is hosting a food drive for Fisherman’s Mark. The need for food is a crisis in our community. This problem that can easily be solved with each of us contributing a small amount and collectively filling the need. Food donation canisters will be provided along the parade route as well as at all ticketed events. For complete information about the food drive, please go to our Fisherman’s Mark page.
Come join the parade. This annual Winter Festival parade marches right across the bridge. All floats, marchers, and fun loving revelers are welcome. For complete information about the parade, go to our Parade page.
