Greenfield Winter Carnival has indoor, outdoor activities for all ages

Jan 29 2018

The 96th Greenfield Winter Carnival will take place Feb. 2-4, featuring ice sculptures, a parade of lights, fireworks, music, a photography contest, an Instagram Scavenger Hunt, games and the four-mile Sleigh Bell Run.

It’s that time of year when many people want snow and ice and cold temperatures.

That’s because it’s winter carnival time, and many of the outdoor events depend on the season to be what it’s supposed to be in February: cold with snow on the ground.

The 96th Greenfield Winter Carnival will take place Friday through Sunday (Feb. 2-4), featuring ice sculptures, a parade of lights, fireworks, music, a photography contest, an Instagram Scavenger Hunt, games and the four-mile Sleigh Bell Run.

In addition, the weekend of activities will include a Family Fun Fest, Breakfast with Olaf, sledding, ice skating, a snow sculpture contest, snowshoe demonstrations, a tug of war, broom ball, hockey, ice bowling a cookie bake-off and a chili cook-off.

And if that’s not enough, how about a vintage snowmobile show, K-9 Keg Pull and cardboard sled race?

It’s a jam-packed weekend of indoor and outdoor fun for people of all ages.

“We always try to add new things and make adjustments to interest the community,” said Greenfield Recreation Director Christy Moore.

Among what’s new this year is a winter carnival ball and a “fat bike” demonstration and group ride.

“A lot of times in February you get to that part of winter when people get the winter blues” Moore said. So the winter carnival is an opportunity for “people to come out and enjoy the out of doors and the community.”

She hopes the events will help “reawaken them for six more weeks of (winter) fun.”
