VIDEO: What happened at Homer Winterfest this weekend?


Hundreds attended the 18th annual Homer Winterfest in the village of Homer, N.Y., on Friday, Jan. 26, and Saturday, Jan. 27.

"It's an opportunity for folks in Homer and the Cortland area to get out of the house, shake off a little bit of the cabin fever, and support the community," said event organizer Eric Mulvihill.

The snowmobile demonstration and rides were cancelled due to a lack of snow. Temperatures were in the 40s on Saturday.

Marty Harrington, event coordinator at the Center for the Arts, helped put on the Community Arts Challenge.

"We had over 200 people," Harrington said. "People were able to come from as far away as Syracuse and Binghamton."

The event is made possible through support from businesses who sponsor Winterfest, along with numerous volunteers.
