Hampden County

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – West Springfield Mayor William Reichelt and the town’s park and recreation department hosted its annual Winter Carnival Saturday afternoon.

Hundreds of families accepted Mayor William Reichelt’s invitation to enjoy a winter’s day at Mittinegue Park.

There was plenty of food for everyone, activities galore and a sense of family togetherness. Activities included animal adventures, master storytelling, photo contests, animal craze, arts and crafts from local organizations, canines, museums, scavenger hunts, and more!

Parents who’ve been coming here for years with their children praised the event.

“I think the weather actually couldn’t be better, because they have hot chocolate, got a bonfire, you can go inside, you can go outside, perfect,” Amber Rogers of West Springfield told 22News.

The fast growing winter carnival tradition is now in its 7th year in West Springfield.
