AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) – They had to make their own snow Saturday so as not to disappoint fans who flocked to the Amherst Winterfest every year.
Winterfest followers at the Cherry Hill Golf course made the best of a day that was hardly conducive to winter activities. This wasn’t the first warm winter day that organizers have had to deal with.
Chris Baxter said, “We’ve had 9 winter festivals here and it has been this warm, so we make snow and still have a lot of fun events for the kids.”
Amherst winter festival visitors made the best of what there was to keep them in the winter spirit on a day when the temperature reached and surpassed 60 degrees.
