With the fall upon us and winter just around the corner, we have no choice but to try to embrace winter activities in Michigan. Yesterday, those in Mid-Michigan were given a new opportunity to enjoy some outdoor winter activities. Zehnder's of Frankenmuth will be opening up Zehnder Park for a huge ice rink.
