Winter celebration returns to Cole Park after more than a decade

first_imgWoidt said that Saturday’s mild weather helped make the event a success. Organizers said they hope to continue holding the event each winter to help fight cabin fever and show off Broome County’s parks. “We’ve been having people come up to us all day and learning about ice fishing, asking us to help them out with things, so definitely a lot of newcomers to the sport,” he said. COLESVILLE (WBNG) — After a more than ten year hiatus, a winter celebration made a comeback in the Southern Tier Saturday. “We couldn’t have asked for a better day,” she said. “Colesville used to have an event like this, they would just have a big winter day at Cole Park,” Director of Broome County Parks and Recreation Liz Woidt said. “We were like hey, let’s make it a Broome County event.” One of those ice fisherman was Karl Schnabl from Endicott. The Broome County Parks Department teamed up with Broome County Executive Jason Garnar to make that idea a reality, now called Winterfest. “We brought back this tradition and there’s a ton of people out — what a great turnout, people are ice fishing, kids are sledding, we’ve got the zoo,” he said.last_img read more
