Your Chilly Checklist: Jan. 18 – 24
Favorite

Many people associate the winter season with unending snow, below freezing temperatures and “hibernating” at your house until spring is here. While those first two characteristics may be true about winters in the South Bend area, that does not mean you have to stay inside all winter long. The South Bend Mishawaka area provides visitors and residents with plenty of shows, concerts, festivals, attractions, and activities to go see and do in the chilly months of winter. There is so much happening how do you keep track of it all? You can stay up-to-date on all things to do throughout winter with this chilly checklist! Along with this 15 week checklist, we will be doing a 15 week contest giving away special prizes each week.
