Newport Vt. Comes alive for the Newport WinterFest 2014

The Newport Winterfest is a day filled with all things that make winter fun, including starting the day with a down home pancake breakfast at the Gateway Center to benefit Newport Boy Scouts, along with Nordic ice skating on Lake Memphremagog. The festival will feature a throw-back to days of yesteryear with a Pond Hockey tournament, the way the game started, a Broomball Ice tournament and a figure skating exhibition.

Add to all that, an illuminated Ice Castle, Snowman Decorating Contest, a fun Pizza Eating Contest and the highlight of the festival, a snowmobile ride-in and the famous Fire & Ice Snowmobile Radar Runs with sleds from all over New England competing for the top prize with speeds well over 100 mph. During the day visitors will be able to warm up at the Cocoa and Smores Party plus merchants sales throughout downtown.

The evening caps off with a bonfire and fireworks, visible from Gardner Park and the surrounding downtown.

Enjoy all that the Newport Winterfest has to offer, Saturday, February 1st in downtown Newport.
