CONOVER - Hundreds of people gathered in Conover to celebrate all things winter. On Saturday the fifth annual Northwoods Blizzard Blast was held.
There were horse drawn sleigh rides, sledding, giant ski races, and plenty of other winter activities.
Event Chairman Lanny Studdard says the event is special because organizers put their heart into it.
"They care about the community, they care about giving back, and I think that concern shows in what they put on here. And it's a wonderful party in the middle of winter when nothing else is going on," said Studdard.
Proceeds from the event go to Northwoods area fire and EMS departments.
