Largest Massachusetts Winter Festival Happening This Weekend!
With the holidays way behind us and we're now in the middle of winter, all we can think about now is when Spring and Summer returns. I'm not going to lie, I'm already over the cold weather and ready for long warm summer days.
With warmer weather still months away, we are stuck battling the cold. But it doesn't have to be all that bad. Yeah, you might be saying to yourself, what can we possibly do for activities in the wintertime?
Then look no further than the annual 2023 WinterFest in Downtown North Adams! Where you and the entire family can enjoy many fun winter festivities. And best of all, all events are free to the public!
Details and events for 2023 to be announced, but will include artists', and crafters' markets, ice sculpting, horse-drawn wagon rides, Main Street bonfire, free ice skating, Children's Winter Carnival, winter fun in Colegrove Park and more. Stay tuned for details!
