Scenes from Winterfest

I was downtown on Saturday morning and checked out the entries in the snowman making competition on JFK Plaza. Above is the entry from the JG Pyne Arts School; below is the one from the Butler. This walk through was the closest I’ve ever come to attending a Winterfest event so I have no personal knowledge of what it was like. I did hear from a family that was there Friday night who felt that all the action was inside the 21-years-and-older tent with the adult beverages, while families with kids didn’t have a lot to do. That kind of echoes the “more soup; less beer” sentiments today’s Lowell Sun Column attributes to City Manager Lynch for how the event should evolve in the future.

Although we may want to exit the cabin during the doldrums of mid-winter, a more productive time for events may be during the period leading up to New Years eve.
Ontario: Rideau Canal ice-skating
Why not ice skating on the canal between LHS during Winterfest?
