The Berkshire Eagle is reporting WinterFest is coming back to the city of North Adams, Mass., after a pandemic-induced hiatus in 2021. The downtown festival, with ice skating, wagon rides and ice sculpture, will take place on February 19. The event will include a farmers market, a craft fair, a campfire, ice sculpture carving and, weather permitting, playing in the snow at Colegrove Park, said Suzy Helme, the event's coordinator. Plus horse-drawn wagon rides up and down Main Street and the city's skating rink will offer free admission and rentals. Because of the continuing pandemic, there will not be the usual chowder cook-off. "Unfortunately that's one of the more popular events," Helme said. "We will have to have fun without it this year." More information will be available on the North Adams Tourism Facebook page, Helme said. Read the full story in The Berkshire Eagle.
