Michigan Adventure Race: Winter Edition

If your family loves to get outdoors together, there are a few options more fun than the Michigan Adventure Race: Winter Edition happening Saturday at Camp Rogers. You and your team will run on and off-trail, navigate with maps, snowshoe (they are provided), and conquer amazing race-like challenges along the way. It's a three-hour race and registration includes a shirt and chili lunch. Get more info at miadventurerace.com.

Princesses and Carriages

You can head to the Gilmore Car Museum for a fairytale event on Saturday starting at 11:30. The Princesses and Carriages event will have over a dozen of your favorite fairytale characters on-site for photo ops. Plus, you can check out vehicles literally fit for royalty, including the 1939 Lincoln used by the king and queen of England. There will be a scavenger hunt, coloring pages, and sweet treats will be available for purchase in the cafe. Get more details at gilmorecarmuseum.org.

Flick's Family Films
