EAST PROVIDENCE, RI – The City of East Providence and WinterFest Committee presents the 12th annual WinterFest celebration on Saturday, December 3, at the East Providence Senior Center, 610 Waterman Avenue.  WinterFest is a free event that promises fun for the whole family!


Festivities begin at 3:00 PM with Dave Marchetti’s “Animal Experiences” petting zoo, free, “grab n’ go” tree ornament crafts, popcorn and hot chocolate.  Joe’s Snack Shack will be on site for those seeking a late lunch/early dinner.


The public is invited to stroll the beautifully decorated WinterFest landscape while waiting for Santa’s arrival by firetruck.  Upon his arrival, Santa will preside over the WinterFest tree lighting.  Children will be able to visit with Santa, receive a candy treat and enter the WinterFest bicycle raffle!
