Once again this year the City of Torrington is hosting a "Winter Carnival" on Feb. 4 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Major Besse Park on Riverdale Road that promises tons of family fun.
There will be many old fashioned outdoor activities like: hay and pony rides, ice skating and sledding and even a home run challenge. There is plenty to do indoors as well as this carnival offers arts and crafts, face painting and a mad science fire and ice show at 2 p.m. that is followed by a family concert at 3 p.m. Keep your eyes peeled for the clown balloon artist that is sure to delight and for the special visit from Chew Chew, the Mascot of the Hartford Yard Goats!
The Torrington First Congregational Church will be offering food for sale including hot dogs, popcorn, hot chocolate and soda. The Northwest Hills Credit Union will provide free cotton candy that is sure to round out the fun!
Remember to dress warm and to bring your sleds and ice skates ! The admission to this event is free.
