Snow may be scarce this year, but the Green Mountain State offers no shortage of seasonal celebration. Simply look to the Peacham Winter Carnival for a seemingly limitless lineup of frosty fun. Festivities commence Friday evening with a lantern parade before folks dig into piping-hot pizza slices at the Peacham Café. A traditional contra dance set to tunes by the Parsnips tops off the night. Merrymakers greet Saturday morning with a pancake breakfast, followed by more than a dozen indoor and outdoor activities. Horse-drawn carriage rides, a lumberjack demonstration, a performance by morris dancers and much more keep cold-weather revelers in the spirit of the season.
