Mayville’s Winter Festival

ERA Team VP Real Estate & Vacation Rentals is a proud sponsor of the 2017 President’s Day Weekend Winter Festival in Mayville, NY.  This year’s schedule of events is chalked full of fun activities for the whole family.  Mark your calendars for Friday, February 17 – Sunday, February 19, because you will not want to miss out on this year’s event!

Unfortunately this year’s weather conditions did not produce enough ice for the famous ice castle to be built, but you won’t want to miss the opening ceremony event that kicks off the weekend on on Friday night at 6pm in the Lakeside Park! Start off your fun filled weekend with a bang and head over to the Lakeview Hotel to listen to the live band, Black Widow starting at 10pm. Bring your friends and family, pack your hot cocoa, and enjoy the beautiful lights and winter views.

Looking for more fun activities and events?  Well Saturday and Sunday are the best days for you to make sure you are at the festival.  Start off your morning with some food at one of the awesome food and craft vendors that are offered.  If you aren’t full after that you might want to check out the kid’s corner edible crafts station in the Community Center.  After you eat, start warming up your arm because there is a snowball distance throwing contest with a chance to win cash prizes!

Looking to keep the kids entertained?  Not to worry because there is an activity or event for everyone to enjoy at this festival!  Bring your children down to the giant slide (weather permitting), the children’s fishing pond or the Legos play area.  Make sure they meet Rainbow the clown to get their faces painted and a balloon animal! If your kids are feeling competitive, make sure they enter the golf ball race, Lego creation building contest, snowman/animal building contest, or even the snowball throwing contest (ages 4+). The list goes on, so bring your kids and be ready for some fun!

If you are hoping for more adventure, there are a few more activities that are perfect for you!  If you are really feeling adventurous, head over to the polar plunge on Saturday at noon to help benefit Food Bank of Western New York! Make sure to get to the lake early to watch the Cold Water Rescue Demo by the Dewittville Fire Department. If taking the plunge isn’t your thing, then you can take snowmobile rides by Chautauqua Lake Snowmobile Services or horse drawn carriage rides throughout the weekend as well!

Volleyball players, dust off your knee pads and bundle up the layers! The second annual Fire and Ice Volleyball Tournament will be hosted at the courts behind the Lakeview Hotel starting Sunday morning at 8:45am.

Feeling like just sitting back and relaxing? Enjoy music on Saturday includes Bob Campbell & Liz Osborne from 2-5pm at the Lakeview Hotel, DJ Goodrich at 10pm, and Brian Moore from 2-5pm on Sunday.

To finish off this amazing festival, there will be a pet parade, bonfire, flare parade, and a fireworks display for you to enjoy!  Send this exciting event off in style and admire the beautiful snowy views that Mayville has to offer!
