LA CROSSE, Wis. -

The La Crosse Recreation Department has canceled two Winter Rec-Fest 2013 events due to lack of snow.

The Family Night at Forest Hills on Friday night and the Snowshoe Scamper 5k/10k Snowshoe Race on Saturday, January 26 have been canceled.

"It's a nice family event and it's something that we were very hesitant in canceling," said Jared Flick, La Crosse Recreation Coordinator. "We were waiting for old mother nature to give us some snow but it just didn't happen."

Even with the cancellations, there are still plenty of events going on this weekend, including broomball, softball and snow volleyball.
