We have three goals:
- to provide a healthy, invigorating cold-weather experience in our river town communities
- to demonstrate that our multi-faceted communities are alive and well in the winter months with exciting and diverse activities
- raise funds and awareness for local non-profit organizations
In 1995, local business owner Louise Decker got the idea to hold a Winter Carnival - like the ones held in the ski areas of New England - events that bring the whole community together! With the help of interested colleagues and friends, Louise pulled it all together and made the first Lambertville Winter Carnival a reality.
That first year there were, among other activities: ice carvings, cross country ski lessons, and a torch light parade down Belle Mountain. (Belle Mountain was a small ski slope at the southern end of Lamberbertville. It closed in 1998.) By the second year, more people were interested in participating and the event became what is now termed the Lambertville New Hope Winter Festival.
The Festival is now spread out over ten days with a host of family-friendly activities, brings thousands of visitors to the area, and keeps hundreds of volunteers quite busy!
