FARGO-MOORHEAD — Winter activities and events are set for the metro's winter festival Frostival will return Saturday, Jan. 15, for its 7th year, and will continue for the next six weeks.

The festival is meant to get people out of the house, and outside to enjoy some winter fun.

Events this year include everything from Camp Warming House — where people can go for hot cocoa and winter activities — to a winter wildlife hiking excursion.

Danni Melquist, Director of Marketing at the Fargo-Moorhead Convention & Visitors Bureau, who's putting on the festival,says they're just trying to help get people through the winter.

"People really take into account the weather in the area and it deters a lot of people. So having things to do and places to go, it just really helps with day-to-day (...)," said Melquist.
