Break out your snowshoes! Smart Farm’s 5th annual Frozen Zucchini 5K Snowshoe Adventure is coming up this Sunday, Janaury 25th at Citizens Park in Barrington and the weather forecast is calling for… SNOW!
No experience is necessary to take part in this fun family tradition from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Citizens Park, 511 Lake Zurich Road, in Barrington. The cost to participate is $35 if you bring your own snowshoes or $45 if you need to rent snowshoes for the 5K adventure.
There’s lots of fun planned for kids during the Snowshoe Adventure. Children age five and older will be supervised by a High School team during the race.
