I saw the first sign that Winterfest is coming!  Buttons for admission to Winterfest are on sale now.  If you wait until February 16 to buy your button the price will be $8 but you can buy a button now at any OnPoint Community Credit Union for just $5.  Buttons can also be found for $6 at Newport Market, Ray’s Market and Deschutes Brewery Pub and Tasting Room (not the restaurant downtown).  A new, interesting option for purchasing buttons this year is through the site,  Buy your button online through their site then print out the receipt and take it to a participating restaurantThe restaurant will give you your button and a special deal on food such as “buy one get one free” dinner at 900 Wall.  Buttons are good for admission to Winterfest all weekend (Friday, Feb. 17 – Sunday, Feb. 19).

Our family really enjoys going to Winterfest.  We have been going every year since we moved here.  The live music is always top notch.  OMSI brings down a huge exhibit from Portland that kids and adults can get lost playing in.  Plus there is plenty of great food and drink.  There is always something going on at Winterfest so be sure to mark your calendars for February 17 – 19.
