The push to make winter fun is ON!

The Cities of Altoona and Eau Claire have been working collaboratively on the Wintermission Initiative to implement pilot projects
based off of community feedback that aim to shift public perception towards winter and get more people of all ages actively embracing social opportunities and public spaces during the winter.
