Hot Hot Heat and Kyprios will headline this year's WinterFest celebration in Surrey.

The free family event takes place Feb. 26 at Central City Plaza in Whalley, featuring numerous activities for children as well as a back-to-back lineup of entertainment on two stages.

Bhangra group SOULdiers & G-Boys, singer Stef Lang, Wide Mouth Mason's Shaun Verreault, and entertainers Dr. Strangelove will grace the main outdoor stage, while the Surrey City Orchestra and Surrey Celebration Dance Team and others will perform on a second, indoor stage.

Hot Hot Heat and Kyprios are scheduled to wrap up the day's entertainment on the main stage. Prior to their performances, there will also be a Surrey 2010 Olympic Flashback Ceremony that will feature Verreault, Lang, Surrey City Orchestra, the celebration dance team and Surrey Youth Circus Troupe.

“This year’s annual Winterfest event promises to be jam packed full of exciting activities and entertainment for festival goers of all ages,” said Mayor Dianne Watts.

Other WinterFest highlights include two toboggan runs, a simulated curling centre and an outdoor synthetic ice skating rink.
