WinterFest returns to Chestnut Ridge on Sunday

Get out and enjoy some family-friendly, winter fun at Sunday’s WinterFest at Chestnut Ridge Park.

The free, annual event in Orchard Park, which runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., will include cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, as well as hay rides, marshmallow roasting and arts and crafts. The hay rides cost $3 per person. Sledding, snowboarding and tobogganing won’t be available because of the lack of a snow base.

There will also be a snow sculpture contest, with judging taking place at 2 p.m. Magic shows will be held at 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The Chestnut Ridge Park casino will be open, with fireplaces available and food for sale.
