Winnie's Hometown Festival Arrives in White River

White River is bustling with excitement this weekend, as the Winnie's Hometown Festival is back.

Festival Coordinator Natalie Albert says the 31st annual festival includes many returning favourites, like the riding lawnmower races.

Albert notes the Winnie's Funland and Trade Fair includes Christina the Crazy Hooper - as seen on "Ellen" - an interactive show with Mr. Mark, and appearances from Buzz and Woody, Peppa Pig, Pikachu, and - of course - Winnie the Pooh.

Also highlighted are two new events: the "Cornhole Tournament" on Saturday, and the First Annual "Mud Run" at the old ski trail across from the water plant on Sunday.

Event sign-up sheets, the schedule, and other information can be found on the Winnie's 31st Annual Hometown Festival Facebook page.
