Families have a little winter fun while exercising


Temperatures may be heating up outside, causing the snow to melt. However, that's not deterring some people from enjoying a frosty activity in South Bend.

On Wednesday night, there was snow tubing at Saint Patrick's County Park.

The "Family Passport to Play" event tries to get local families outdoors and exercising. "Tubing on the way down is real easy," said Jon Berg of Healthworks! Kids' Museum. "That's the easy part. It's coming up, that's the hard part. This isn't Swiss Valley. You're not taking a gondola up or anything. You have to walk down the hill. It's a pretty steep hill. You do it five or six times, and you get pretty tired."

The event was actually scheduled for earlier this month, but organizers said dangerously cold temperatures forced them to call off the family fun and postpone it.
