MONONGALIA COUNTY -

The cold and snowy weather was perfect for one event in Morgantown.

The annual Toboggan Festival was held Saturday at Chestnut Ridge Regional Park.

Dozens of people came out to ride sleds, tubes and toboggans down the 350 foot hill.

The event also had multiple contests, including one involving limbo sticks.

"We got here not knowing the Toboggan Festival was today," said Mike Bogroff, who brought his son out to sled. "We went down twice and they told us we had to clear the hill for the contests to start so we went in and signed up and joined the first contest which was closest to the snow man's nose at the bottom of the hill."

The festival charged $5 to enjoy the fun and rent a toboggan.
