From The Greeneville Neighbor News

BLOWING ROCK, N.C. -- WinterFest in Blowing Rock brings together the elements of fire and ice, set in the winter beauty of one of Travel & Leisure magazine’s “prettiest winter towns.”

Bonfires, toasted marshmallows, warm hospitality and the Chili Cookoff provide the fire, while the Polar Plunge, ice carving, winter temperatures and skiing/snowboarding provide the cold contrast.

Winterfest activities, which run Jan. 23-26, are designed to appeal to day-trippers and overnight guests alike, with family activities a major focus of the 16th annual celebration.

Notable events and activities include the Chili Cookoff, Polar Plunge, Winterfeast, Hayrides, Bonfires, Shop ‘Til You Drop, ice carving, Winter Paws dog show, concerts and the WinterFashion show. For a full schedule of events, visit blowingrockwinterfest.com/schedule.php.
