Food, fun, and beds

Winter finally broke Sunday, Jan. 29, and snow covered downtown, giving a fitting finale to the Port Huron Chilly Fest.

Chilly Fest, which took place only one weekend instead of the events usual two, still had plenty to offer to residents and visitors.

Military Street Music Café won the Chili Cookoff, which took place on Saturday, Jan. 28. Last year Military Street took second place.

Along with the Chili Cookoff, Kirk Maltby, former Red Wings player, was featured in a Meet and Greet, taking pictures and signing autographs with a ticket price of $15.

Bed races were on Sunday, with the Port Huron Fighting Falcons taking first place.

Plenty of free activities were also available over the weekend, such as horse and carriage rides, kids’ crafts, ice carving viewing, and demonstrations. Hot chocolate was also available, free of charge.

Although snow found Port Huron on Sunday, it was not enough to save the Outlaw Snowmobile Races, previously scheduled for Feb. 3-5, as the weather warmed again.
