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
- Family movie
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.
