Ten Days, Two Themed Weekends
The Holyoke Winter Carnival will have two themed weekends. The first weekend, February 7 - 9, will focus on Sports, Recreation, and Movement, to coincide with the start of the Winter Olympics. The Holyoke Dog show will be on Sunday, February 9. The second weekend, February 13-16, will celebrate Holyoke Arts and Entertainment with a Night Parade, Quilt Show, Chili Cook-off, Free Community Pancake Breakfast, and puppet show.
The Carnival will again open with a Luminaria at Community Field on Friday, February 7. The sunset-timed event will begin as dusk settles over Holyoke's newest four-season park. Over 1,000 candlelit luminaries will dot the walkways of Community Field. The night will feature music, ice-skating, free hot chocolate, and picture-taking opportunities with family and friends. It will be a one-night visual spectacle--not to be missed.
Last year, hundreds of school children participated by creating drawings on white lunch bags, which were used for the luminaries. If your local school would like to get involved, please contact us.
