Come out and celebrate Wintefest with the rest of the Chelmsford this weekend!
Events are scheduled all over town, starting Friday night with snowshoeing at Russell Mill Forest and ending with a winter nature walk at the Archer Meadowbrook Reservation, with all sorts of fun indoor and outdoor activities for the entire family in between.
Check out the Wintefest Schedule of Events for complete details, and a map to each event location.
And if you go snowshoeing Friday night, be sure to stop by the library afterward to warm up with our "Sweet Suspense and Lethal Libations" event - lots of desserts, books and conversation.Posted in Current News, Events, One Book | No Comments »
