Ponca State Park in northeast Nebraska will be the scene of all types of winter activities at the park's Winterfest celebration.
The event will be held all day on Dec. 29 and is designed to allow visitors to rekindle wintertime family traditions.
Outdoor activities include sledding, a fruitcake-flinging contest, children's kindling hunt, a yule log quest, bonfire and hayrack rides. Indoor activities include art display, crafts, wine and cheese tasting, soup supper, and entertainment.
The Yule Log Quest is a team competition to locate the log within the park. The kindling found in the children's contest will be used to light the log for the bonfire.
A park entry permit is required for each vehicle entering the park.
