Indian Lake Winterfest

INDIAN LAKE This weekends 22nd Annual Winterfest is a chance for the community to pull together and have a good time, organizers said. It really is a community event, said Vonnie Liddle, Indian Lake events and activities coordinator. It brings together a lot of different organizations, the school and others. Its a group effort. Many of the towns seasonal homeowners come back for the week because school is out for Presidents Week winter break. We time it for Presidents Week so they can do that, Liddle said. Cold temperatures and recent snows will lend to the Winterfest atmosphere, Liddle said, but most events arent dependent on the weather.
