Carnival-goers brave the rain

GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Greenfield’s 92nd annual Winter Carnival concluded Sunday with more rain than snow.

Diehard carnival lovers made allowances for the lack of snow and soggy conditions at Beacon field where the carnival has been a fixture for as long as anyone can remember.

Garth Shaneyfeld of Greenfield said, “I think we could have used a little more snow but it’s still a great event we have cardboard sleds instead of the actual races.”

“I was hoping for not raining but Nick Bannin this morning said there was going to be rain so he was right,” Joan Pyrfrom of Greenfield said.

The children had no complaints as long as the skating conditions remained intact. The 92nd annual winter festival actually began Friday with this ice sculpture display.

Shoppers went indoors Saturday for the monthly winter market at Greenfield high school.

Carnival lovers made no secret of their wish that they celebrate their 93rd annual carnival next year in conditions where the snow will be more prominent than the rain.
