Newburyport Winter Carnival is This Weekend!
Written by Ann, Ziptivity’s North Shore Community Ambassador
Last week’s Save the Date, the Newburyport Winter Carnival, is this coming Saturday, 1/22! Get on out and enjoy all this snow at this great free community event! This annual festival draws about 1,000 people to the Mall for outdoor activities and events including the Human Dog Sled Race, in which teams race across the frozen pond. There are skate races and winter games, such as snowman building, basketball on ice and snowball activities. Open skating, snowboarding, sledding and horse-drawn hayrides will occur throughout the day. Free hot cocoa, coffee and cookies too! Not to be missed… Oh, and be sure to hit Tendercrop Farm on your way home for their famous blueberry cream cheese cake!
