Syracuse Winterfest Continues and Other Activities

The second weekend of Syracuse Winterfest promises downtown fun and more activities in and around Central New York.

All weather anomalies are welcome this last Syracuse Winterfest weekend, because there are a lot of mid-winter activities in CNY to coax even the most reclusive outside.

Despite not being too wintry, jam to Hammond B-3 tunes, enjoy and vote on specialty cocktails and food, support a few great causes, go see a show, run a marathon or just take in a game.

There is much to do and see, and it’s even a great weekend to detail the interior of your car.
