MAYVILLE – The Mayville Ice Castle lit up the night Friday during the first evening of the Presidents Day Weekend Winter Festival at Lakeside Park.
The castle is part of an annual festival that started in 1987, and has grown ever since.
In an interview with the President of Mayville/Chautauqua Chamber of Commerce this week, Sally Andriaccio said this year’s event will be ramped up a bit.
“New this year is we are having a beer and wine tent featuring all local wineries and breweries,” said Andriaccio. “We also have a kids tent this year; we’ve got some ice skating and hockey on the lake. We have a lot of new food trucks this year and a lot of crafters.”
Some of the biggest highlights of the weekend include a Polar Plunge Saturday at 2 p.m.
At 8 p.m. Saturday a winter fireworks display will take the sky.
