Greenwood Lake gears up for Winter FestivalPosted: Updated:
People are gearing up for the Greenwood Lake Winter Festival in Orange County.
This is the first year the Greenwood Lake Chamber of Commerce is hosting the event right on the town beach.
Organizers say the event is great for families with kids of any age, and they will have a heated tent to keep people warm. “I think this is really a great thing to do for middle of winter. Especially for February. It's a good way to get people aware of Greenwood Lake. There will be food vendors, games and competitions, anyone is welcome to attend,” says Jennifer Schneider, of the GWL Winter Carnival committee.
The event will be held Presidents Day weekend and it's free.
