Three This Month: Welcoming Winter

Three can’t-miss January events from across the state.

1/19
Prescott Farm Moonlit Snowshoe Walk
[Laconia]

While some winter nights are surely fated for cozying up by a roaring fire, the beauty of those snowy, white New Hampshire nights have a magnetic allure. And Prescott Farm is celebrating those by hosting moonlit snowshoe walks through the season, inviting all to explore their grounds on a guided walk,  where environmental educators will discuss nocturnal nightlife and point out constellations along the way. Prescott Farm offers even more snowshoe activities during the daytime, from family walks to a snowshoe yoga class.

1/24 – 27
Black Ice Pond Hockey Tournament [Concord]

One of the largest outdoor winter events in the state, this championship tournament and winter festival draws in nearly 700 hockey players from across New England. In its ninth year, Black Ice has perfected the outdoor carnival feel by bringing in food trucks, interactive games, fireworks, and live entertainment as well as bonfires, heated spectator tents, and snow sculptors to keep everyone entertained.

1/25 – 27
Jackson Snow Sculpting Competition [Jackson]

This invitational brings the best snow sculptors from around the Northeast to Black Mountain to try their hand at turning an eight-by-four cylinder of snow into a unique work of art – in front of a live (and lively) audience!  Last year’s favorites included a lifesized Popeye the Sailor and an icy Bender the robot from Futurama. At night the sculptures are illuminated with torches and kids and adults alike enjoy live entertainment, the lantern parade, and even scavenger hunts.
