The 30th Annual Winter Celebration at Lake Ontario Beach Park kicked off Saturday.

People enjoyed dogsled demonstrations, snow-shoeing lessons and horse drawn sleigh rides. You couldn't miss the annual Chilly Chili Challenge and a taste of some local wineries.

"It's just a way to get people out in the winter time," Assistant Director Jim Farr said. "It's been 30 years and it's still a longtime tradition in the city."

Today's events are all leading up to the Polar Plunge.
