Check out Cabin Fever DaysCabin Fever Days kicks off today with events and activities for residents to enjoy. It’s good to see organizations and businesses getting into the winter celebration as through the years participation has dwindled to the nearly nonexistent.

Cabin Fever Days kicks off today with events and activities for residents to enjoy. It’s good to see organizations and businesses getting into the winter celebration as through the years participation has dwindled to the nearly nonexistent. This year, with the cold weather, the term “cabin fever” has taken on new meaning.
Cabin Fever includes 10 days of indoor and outdoor events for all ages and interests. For the physically active, there are all kinds of tournaments. Some, such as darts and racquetball, have been reborn. Others involve youth in the community so there’s an activity for the adult spectators among us to enjoy. Outdoor activities include skating and sledding. And for the sports activist there’s cross country skiing on miles of groomed trails at Hillcrest Golf Course.
For those less physically inclined, a Skittles tournament is held today through Sunday at the Buffalo Mall. All the game takes is some finesse in releasing the top and a lot of body language. Or, if playing cards is your game, there’s a card party Sunday afternoon. Outdoors, there are horse-drawn sleigh rides and watching the Polar Pig Big Splash.
For shoppers, it’s a sidewalk sale at the mall today and Saturday as well as a rummage sale benefiting James River Humane Society Saturday at the Zebedee Center.
Events focusing on food are always a hit. Saturday, it’s chili sampling and Zonta’s Chocolate Fever Festival. Saturday night, residents can enjoy a wine and cheese tasting at the Arts Center. And chili is back on the menu Thursday when Bank Forward serves up its Curbside Chili To Go.
If you’re looking for something to do for the second weekend of Cabin Fever Days, try co-ed volleyball or darts. Sledding and ice skating continue. Also, residents can end this year’s celebration as spectators or participants in the snow drag races taking place south of the Stutsman County Fairgrounds.
The list of this year’s events has the kind of variety we want to see for Cabin Fever Days. Along with Doug Hogan, director of Jamestown Parks and Recreation, whose office was the clearing house for events, we’re happy to see the increase in the celebration’s activities and hope next year will be even better.
There’s something for everyone, so we encourage everyone to enjoy Cabin Fever Days.
