GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – If one place was happy to see snow, it was Greenfield. 22News went to Greenfield for the Winter Carnival to see many happy faces.
Greenfield’s annual Winter Carnival started Friday, but the festivals continued Saturday and will continue through Sunday.
Friday’s snowstorm brought a good amount of snowfall to western Massachusetts and made Greenfield glisten in the sunlight Saturday. Greenfield saw 4.5 inches of snow after Friday’s snowstorm, and it was certainly welcomed and almost perfect timing, making the Greenfield Winter Carnival look like a winter wonderland.
22News talked to Greenfield recreation director Christy Moore, who told 22News she welcomed the snow with open arms, “So thankful we had snow, because originally we had canceled some events, so thankfully we got snow so we can have our famous cardboard sled race occur again.”
Saturday’s activities included a LEGO Competition, an Art Exhibit, Face Painting and Crafts, and also Joe the Magician. 22News just missed Joe the Magician, who performed at ten o’clock, but he showed 22News a special trick and even let us help him.
Of course, we couldn’t forget about the fresh powder out on the hills which made a great base for sledding, at any age.
Some of Sunday’s activities include Breakfast with Olaf, Public Ice Skating, and the famous Cardboard Sled Contest.
