Winter can be pretty cool — just look at the flurry of activities that the fourth annual Waterbury Winterfest has to offer. Throughout the 10-day bash, cold-weather warriors converge for sports tournaments ranging from broomball to volleyball to snow football, a ladies’ cross-country skiing clinic, a 5K fun run, a history hike and much more. Indoorsy types aren’t left out in the cold — the Extempo storytelling competition, a chess tournament, poker games, beer tastings and the Snow Ball dance keep the January blues at bay. Revelers who dig into this seasonal celebration are sure to be, as Run DMC raps, chillin’ and coolin’ just like a snowman.
