Going way back to my childhood and trust me, that was a long time ago, I have always had great memories of the Cooperstown Winter Carnival, a long-standing tradition in the beautiful village that continues as an annual event this coming weekend.  This event, sponsored by the Cooperstown Lions Club has a mission of "bringing light and laughter into dark days of winter, getting out and connecting with community, and celebrating and promoting our community organizations and businesses."  If that sounds good to you then you can check out a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities for all ages at www.cooperstownwintercarnival.com, where you can get the full schedule of events from Friday through Sunday.

Events are subject to change and are typically weather related so it's a good idea to keep an eye on the Cooperstown Winter Carnival Facebook page for updates.
