Snow or no snow, the University at Buffalo will hold Winterfest
2012, a UB tradition for more than 60 years, from 1-5 p.m. on
Saturday, Feb. 18, at South Lake Village on the North Campus. Open
to all UB students, faculty and staff, it's a great way for the
entire campus community to shake off hibernation for a day.
The festival will feature igloo- and snowman-making contests,
with judging to be held at 4:30 p.m. Other events will include
broomball, ice bowling, polar kick ball and ice skating. In
addition, the Getzville Fire Department will hold an ice rescue
demonstration at 2 p.m.
For those who are less enthusiastic about playing out in the
cold, there will be board games, music, food and door prizes in the
South Lake Community Building. Events will conclude at 5 p.m.
