Chase away the winter blahs this weekend at the “Cooperstown Winter Carnival”! There are events for the whole family going on all weekend. Check out the details.

Here’s more about the Cooperstown Winter Carnival according to cooperstowncarnival.org:

Cooperstown Winter Carnival – February 7th, 8th & 9th

It all began when a committee of winter sports enthusiasts representing the Cooperstown Ski Club and Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce got together and planned the first winter festival in late February of 1967.

The main attraction for the first of what was to be many carnivals to come was dog sled racing. The event drew an estimated 6,000 spectators.

Events such as the snow sculpture contest became a part of winter carnival tradition. Although originally worked on for an entire week, the snow and ice creations are now completed in just a day.

Some of the more non-traditional events have included sky diving and figure skating exhibitions, airplane rides, automobile gymkhanas and 4-wheel drive drag races.

Themes and queens, prizes and surprises, the usual and unusual have all been features of winter carnival weekend over the years.”
