Hawley Winterfest 2015 Planning is Underway
Hawley, PA, August 24th, 2015. The tail end of summer is upon us and soon autumn’s beauty and bounty will slowly begin to blanket the region, but a group of dedicated business people and community members are already thinking snowmen, snowflakes and holiday carols.
The Hawley Winterfest Committee is in the planning stages for one of the area’s biggest pre-holiday festivals. This year’s 17th Annual Hawley Winterfest begins on Friday December 11th and runs through Sunday, December 13th. The committee is comprised of downtown merchants, area business owners and local residents dedicated in bringing this charming, old-fashioned and festive atmosphere to Hawley again.
This year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever with some new additions as well as time-honored favorites from years past. The festival is one stop winter wonderland experience with fun for the entire family so mark your calendars and plan on braving the winter chill. A cheerful time is had by all throughout historic Hawley, a quaint town nestled in the beautiful Pocono Mountains Lake Region of Wayne and Pike counties. Local residents and visitors celebrate winter with music entertainment, art shows, a children’s play, delicious food and drink, holiday historic house tours, ice carvings, carriage rides, shopping, a beer tour, cookie decorating, exhibits, contests, demonstrations, giveaways and much more!
