The indoor events for Special Olympics Connecticut's Winter Games were held on Saturday after a wintry mix postponed the outdoor events to Sunday.

On Saturday, the unified floor hockey and skills competition was at the Pratt and Whitney Hangar in East Hartford and the figure and speed skating competition was at the International Skating Center of Connecticut in Simsbury.

A traditional basketball tournament was also being held at Holy Cross High School and additional schools in Waterbury on Saturday.

The weather postponed outdoor competitions including alpine skiing, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing to Sunday.

The alpine skiing and snowboarding competition will be Sunday at Powder Ridge Mountain Park Resort in Middlefield, the cross-country skiing and snowshoeing competition will be at Eversource in Windsor and gymnastics will be at Farmington Valley Gymnastics and More in Plainville.
