4th annual Winterfest!

RESCHEDULED!  Due to the lack of winter, Winterfest has been pushed to the backup date of Feb. 20th.

Join us at Nathaniel Thayer Memorial Park on Saturday, Feb. 20th for a great day of winter fun and activities!

Come out to the park for family-friendly outdoor activities throughout the day, including snow volleyball, wiffle ball, tug-o-war, snowshoeing and more!  The ice rink will be open, so bring your skates and take advantage of the free skating lesson, or skip the skates and bring your broom to enjoy a game or two of broomball on the ice.  Head over to the church when you need to warm up and enjoy children’s artwork on display from area schools and vote for your favorite in the chili contest.

We will have several food options available at the park, including hot dogs, popcorn, pizza and several chili varieties in the chili contest.  An excellent array of baked goods will be available to satisfy your sweet tooth and top things off!
