What’s long and green and wears snowshoes in Barrington?  You guessed it! It’s the Smart Farm’s Frozen Zucchini mascot who will be making his big appearance in Barrington this weekend for the Smart Farm’s third Frozen Zucchini 5K Snowshoe Adventure, which starts at 10 a.m. on Sunday, January 27th, at Citizens Park.

Frozen Zucchini Showshoe Adventure 2013

No experience is necessary to take part in the race and showshoes will be available for rent. If there’s not enough snow, the Big Green Zucchini will swap his snowshoes for his sneakers and they’ll run the event as a traditional 5K race.

There are also exciting race-day activities planned for kids age five and older, but event organizers ask that you remember to dress appropriately and wear clothes to keep you warm outside for longer periods.

The cost to participate in the race is $35 if you register online by Thursday, January 24th or $40 for race day registration. If you don’t bring your own snowshoes, the cost to rent a pair is $15 and there are limited snowshoes available.

The Smart Farm of Barrington is a local 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining educational gardens for the Barrington area and nearby communities. Their mission is to teach adults, children and students about their agricultural heritage, organic gardening, the slow food movement, and best practices for living “green,” sustainable lives. They also donate fruits & veggies from the garden to neighbors in need who receive the fresh produce from local food pantries.

Words can harm, they can heal, they can inspire and they can change the world. Dr. King is considered by many to be one of the greatest speakers of all time, using his words, his passion, and his conviction to lead one of the most important movements in our nation's history. For today's family activity, talk about some of Dr. King's most famous quotes.
