11th Annual Winter Festival – North Bennington
The North Bennington Winter Festival starts with the pre-Plunge breakfast at Lake Para, followed by hearty souls plunging into the freezing waters of Lake Paran. Festivities continue with lots of activities throughout the Village — the Chili Fest with over 20 Chilies to sample,, the Indoor Winter Carnival for Children at the Village School of North Bennington, the Spirits of Old Bennington Tastings at Powers Market, Storytime and children’s activities at the Library, Snowman building (with or without snow) at the Park McCullough mansion, solar power displays and electric car races at the Left Bank, the Girl Scout’s bake sale, and Beer, Bourbon and BBQ at Kevin’s. The free wagon ride will take you to all the key locations. North Bennington is the perfect village for strolling and provides easy access to all the activities.
