Throughout the nine days of its winter carnival, Brattleboro, Vermont, keeps a symbolic torch burning and hosts Junior Olympics alpine ski and skating races. Snowmobile rides, bowling, snowshoeing, an ice fishing derby, non-competitive skiing, and a hockey game round out the sports activities.

The Brattleboro Winter Festival doesn’t forget its New England heritage, though. Old-time activities like a sugar-on-snow event, pancake breakfast, cooking classes, sleigh and hay rides, and visits to animals are among the highlights of the festival from Saturday, February 17, through Sunday, February.

Also on the schedule: Family-day activities for ages 3 and older, a teen dance, country western jamboree for adults only, murder mystery dinner, and several movies.
