Put on your parkas and gloves and head over to Putnam for the 8th Annual Fire and Ice Festival on Feb 10. This large-scale ice sculpture carving event attracts people from all over the country. Watch as several 300 lb. blocks of ice are transformed into a work of art - bring your Valentine or bring the whole family!
While you are at it, why not make a whole weekend of it? If you are already in the "quiet corner" of Connecticut, you may want to check out a few others things like the Conn. Audubon's programs, the Chocolate Festival, and the Textile Museum. And of course, don't forget to check our Mommy Poppins' Winter Guide for all things fun to do in winter!
