Some winter weather enthusiasts spent Sunday enjoying all the season has to offer.

The annual Winterfest was held at Mendon Ponds Park.

 Families from across the community came out to try all kinds of winter activities like ice fishing, snowshoeing and ice boating.

It’s all about getting people excited about the different things you can do in the winter.

“This is wonderful to get back, instead of sitting on the couch and watching TV, we're out here enjoying and living life,” said Dana Herdz, who attended the event.

About 5,000 people attend the free event each year.
