Family Fun at Lowell’s 11th Annual Winterfest

So my babysitter grew up in Lowell, one of eight children from a very close-knit family.  She knows everything about Lowell – she even knows the real guys from the movie The Fighter.  Come to think of it, she went to the premier party (and no, I didn’t get to tag along).  The one hometown event she raves about as the BEST event of the year is Lowell’s Winterfest.

This season marks the 11th year and the line-up of family-friendly activities and events is outstanding.  Here’s a list of my favorites, to name a few:

  • Snowman competition
  • Hot roasted marshmallows
  • Family fun zone
  • Ice sculptures
  • Fire dancers and fire entertainment
  • Live music
  • Soup competition
  • FREE public skating at the Tsongas Center (BYOS)
  • All-you-can-eat chocolate festival
  • Mittens and Museum Madness
  • Sleigh rides
  • Dogsledding
  • Family movie
  • Fireworks

I mean, OMG.  Who knew?  My babysitter, that’s who.  And now you do too. 

Read the entire schedule of events and don’t miss Lowell’s event of the year – the 11th Annual Winterfest!  Starts Friday, February 4 at 10:00 am and runs through Saturday evening, February 5, culminating in a fantastic fireworks extravaganza at 6:00 p.m.

    My babysitter just informed me that the dogsledding event has been cancelled due to, what else? Too much snow.
