Jamaica is bringing musical vibes and island warmth to the 20th annual Zehnder’s Snowfest this weekend in Frankenmuth. Visitors may try their luck at getting through Jamaican-themed ice carvings on a 9-hole mini-golf course in Zehnder’s parking lot (behind Rau’s Country Store) from 3-8 pm Friday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m., Sunday. Cost is $2 per person.
Beyond the family-bonding time, travelers will have a chance to stop by Jamaica tourism’s booth inside the heated Snowfest tent to enter to win a winter escape aboard Apple Vacations’ new winter charter from Capital Region International Airport (LAN) in Lansing.
Four-hour, nonstop flights will operate on Sundays through April 24.
The charter departs Lansing at 7 a.m., and arrives at Montego Bay airport just before 11 a.m. The return flight is scheduled to depart Montego Bay airport at 11:50 a.m., and arrive in Lansing at 3:50 p.m.
Apple Vacations flies SunCountry Airlines, using B737-800 aircraft configured with 162 seats.
