WILLMAR — Winter in Minnesota means there's no shortage of snow to turn a cold day into an amusement park full of fun. Children at Robbins Island Park in Willmar enjoyed their Thursday afternoon by playing in the snow. The fun ranged from having snowball fights to making snow angels and even taste-testing the beautiful blanket of white flakes.
