The Finger Lakes region of New York is gearing up for the second annual Finger Lakes Winter Carnival, a three-day event celebrating the unique offerings of the area during the winter season.

The carnival runs through Sunday and will feature a variety of local shops, food, and beverage offerings, as well as ice bars, themed ice sculptures, live music, lakefront fire pits, and Saturday night fireworks over Canandaigua Lake.

The event will span across various locations in Canandaigua, including downtown, Bristol Mountain Ski Resort, the Canandaigua Lake front, and The Lake House on Canandaigua. A portion of the proceeds will benefit United Way of Greater Rochester and the Finger Lakes. Each day of the carnival will showcase up to 20 Finger Lakes specialty businesses in the Event Barn at The Lake House on Canandaigua.

This is the first of three events planned to celebrate the Finger Lakes region this winter. The next event is the downtown Canandaigua’s Fire and Ice Festival in February, followed by a spring fling in March.

The Finger Lakes Winter Carnival is a great opportunity to experience the lively winter destination, and support local businesses and charities at the same time.
