Cool but sunny weather and lots of laughter from crowds of happy youngsters is on display at the 2014 Jack Frost Children’s Winter Festival.

The festival, being celebrated today and Sunday at the Charlottetown Event Grounds, is back after a one-year absence. Strait Crossing Bridge Ltd. came to the rescue of the festival after it wasn’t held last winter.

One of the families making a weekend if it is Chris Freeman and his family from Nova Scotia. He said he visited the festival two years ago and both times he and his kids have had a great experience.

"Good so far and fun and the kids just checked out the seems pretty good so far, but we just got here a few minutes ago," he said. They are planning to take in all the activities.

Massive snow slides have been built on the event site. In addition the grounds have been transformed into a winter wonderland complete with a maze, skating rink, old-fashioned horse and sleigh rides and a CAT tube run.

Activities will also be taking place at Eastlink Centre and trade centre — bouncies, petting zoo, photography booth, etc. — as well as the Confederation Court Mall with things like the princess boutique.

The one and only Sesame Street live touring production out of the United States is one of the highlights of the event.

    I would imagine that this festival will soon deter out of province visitors. Other provinces are getting or have their own snow festivals now. The cost of the bridge, tickets, room rentals, gas, weather may be factors to deter visitors. Can it survive on just fans from PEI? That remains to be seen imo
