Tired of being stuck in the house all winter? Escape the boredom and come out to WinterFest 2011.
Destination Toledo, Inc. has partnered up with area attractions to celebrate its second annual WinterFest Feb. 25-27.
Area attractions will be offering discounts during the weekend to boost sales this winter. Imagination Station, Toledo Zoo, Toledo Museum of Art, Valentine Theatre, Tam-O-Shanter Sports and Exhibition Center and local restaurants including Zia’s, Real Seafood, Maumee Bay Brew Pub and The Blarney are participating in this event.
Cathy Miller, director of tourism for Destination Toledo, Inc., said, “There are plenty of quality family activities in the winter, but we sometimes need a little added incentive to go out in the cold. WinterFest incorporates what is already available to families, but includes online coupons for special admission rates and discounts. Add great hotel discounts and packages to the mix and you are set for a great get-a-way weekend.”
Imagination Station will be offering buy one adult admission and get one free child admission.
Frozentoesen continues at the Toledo Zoo with half off admission. Activities include ice carving demonstrations, cabin fever feeds, indoor family games and magician Chris Clark.

Book your get-a-way to the Holiday Inn Splash Bay Indoor Water Park, Maumee Bay Lodge and Conference Center or the Hampton Inn Toledo South Maumee which are all offering special weekend packages.
Miller said last year was a huge success. “I think the big plus here is that we have some fantastic things in our own “backyard.” We had several replies from participates last year thanking us for the suggested discounted activities. We are happy to once again highlight member offerings with scheduled events over this weekend.”
