OOB Winter Carnival

Written by: Amy Paradysz - Contributor - amyparadysz@gmail.com

So what if it hasn’t snowed in a week. OOB365 still managed to build a massive sledding hill on Old Orchard Street! More than 1,000 people picked up a sled and gave it a try between Friday night and Saturday night, sticking around to check out the other Winter Carnival attractions. Cotton candy. A petting zoo. Ice sculptures. A character breakfast. Or just running around the beach. Why wait for spring? Sharri MacDonald, president of OOB365, said the hotels that are open this time of year were filled to capacity for the weekend. Besides being a little boost to the winter economy of OOB, the festivities were a mood boost for local kids wrapping up their February staycations. There’s the literal slippery slope for the all ages, and then Saturday night’s 21+ Slippery Slope Bar Crawl. www.oob365.com.
