Media Release: February Family Jam happening February 20

Collingwood, ON [8 February 2017] – February Family Jam returns this Family Day, February 20th with some great activities enjoyed in previous years and some exciting new additions.
 
On Family Day, Monday, February 20, come on out to Central Park for skating, swimming and a family scavenger hunt. You can also try out a fat bike, curling (don’t forget your clean running shoes for the ice), or some Healthy Kids Community Challenge activities. New this year is the Canada 150 Community Art Project, family Zumba and, courtesy of the Collingwood YMCA, a family agility, balance & coordination obstacle course.
                                          
When you need to warm up, there will be free hot chocolate, a campfire and a warm up lunch area to keep you and your family toasty.
 
The Healthy Kids Community Challenge Activities will be based on the new theme of Choose to Boost Veggies and Fruit and will be presented in cooperation with the Environment Network. The Healthy Kids Community Challenge Collingwood Winter Activity Passports which have been distributed to Collingwood elementary school students are filled with ideas to keep kids active over the winter and having fun. Completed passports can be dropped off at Centennial Aquatic Centre or at any of our Collingwood Elementary schools to enter our draw. The winter activity passport draw will be incorporated into Family Jam activities. Winners will be contacted the final week of February. Prizes include Fitbits and SportChek gift certificates.
 
There are more than 20 different things to do, and they’re all free! For more details on these and many additional free weekend activities, visit collingwood.ca/familyday
 
Collingwood February Family Jam is presented by the Town of Collingwood, Healthy Kids Community Challenge, Collingwood YMCA, the Curling Club of Collingwood, and Ride Guides Cycling Adventures.
