On February 9th downtown Keene will host the 12th Annual Keene Ice and Snow Festival. From 10AM to 4PM, Central Square, Gilbo Avenue, and the surrounding area will be festooned with ice and snow sculptures – and lots of participatory activities.
Help judge the sculptures, join the snowball throwing contest, build a snowman, or have your photo taken with the Ice Princess, Polar Bear, and the Snowman. Warm up with hot chocolate, s’mores, and more! Be entertained by magician Ben Pratt, a snowboard railjam, musicians, train rides, and face painting.
This event is co-sponsored by the Monadnock Travel Council and the Greater Keene Chamber of Commerce. For more information on the Keene Ice and Snow Festival, click here or see the event’s facebook page.
PLEASE NOTE: This was just added to the Festival’s facebook page: Due to the severe weather coming over the next couple days the Ice & Snow Festival scheduled for this Saturday is cancelled. We will keep you posted if it is possible to reschedule the event to a later date.
