Weekend Wanderings – Jack Frost Children’s Winterfest

This post is sponsored by Jack Frost Children’s Winterfest.* 

Our Weekend Wanderings took us to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, in late February. We packed up the car with our family of 4 and were on the road to the Jack Frost Children’s Winterfest. Only a few hours from Moncton, this was the perfect weekend adventure. For this particular adventure, we left Moncton around noon on Friday and arrived back home Sunday at suppertime. Our VIP Package included hotel stay for 2 nights, welcome bag for the kids upon arrival, snacks each night (if you are at the hotel at the time), breakfast with various kids show characters and early access to the sites each day.
