Taylor's Winter Olympics returning this weekend

The day will feature a slew of fun, winter events such as snowshoeing, unique dog sled races, frozen boot curling, and a gold pan toss, just to name a few.

Categories are set up for the afternoon to provide an opportunity for participants of all ages to partake in the festivities. Divisions will include Tykes (2-5), Children (6-12), Teens (13-18) and finally Adults/Seniors (18 and up).

While competitors won’t be receiving medals for their efforts, they won’t be leaving the Olympics empty handed either.

Participants will be competing for chances to win a variety of door prizes following the afternoon's events.

Organizers say the games were well received last year, as approximately 120 people took part in the last Taylor Winter Games, and hope the predicted nice weather will help attract a lot of participants.

The Olympics, which are free of charge to participate in, will begin at the Taylor Community Hall at noon, with an hour for lunch and registration.

Games will begin at 1 p.m., running until 4 p.m., and will be followed by a gathering back in the Community Hall.
