It's easy to want to spend your spare time Netflixing and avoiding the chill. But it's good to get out of doors and revel in the winter with other community members. Monroe County's 24th annual Winterfest at Mendon Ponds Park. The festival is free to attend, and includes face painting, crafts, sled dog races, Nordic skiing and snowshoeing, and winter-themed demonstrations held both outside and inside the Park's heated lodges. Refreshments will be available for purchase at the park's Nature Center, Stewart Lodge, and East/West Lodge.
Winterfest takes place Sunday, January 13, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Mendon Ponds Park (enter the park from either Route 65 (Clover Street) or Pittsford-Mendon Center Road). Free. monroecounty.gov/parks-winterfest.
