Winter Festival

What is your favorite part about winter carnival or winter festival at your high school or college? What were some of the activities that they had available?

My favorite part about the winter carnival here at UMaine was the free skate on the mall. My friend Phoebe and I tried our luck skating on the makeshift ice rink they made on the mall. We ended up laughing the whole time because I had never used hockey skates before and they were kind of to big for me so I was wobbling all over the place, almost face planting several times, and her skates were to stiff and she could hardly move in them. There was one part on the ice rink where it was rather bumpy and uneven and we told ourselves to avoid that region but we always ended up going over it anyhow and made a fool of ourselves trying not to fall by flailing our arms about and cussing under our breath. We showed up late for all the activities on the mall but in a way it was a good thing because only the 8 or so people left on the ice saw us trying to skate.

  1. When I was in high school my favorite part about winter carnival was the competition between the classes. I enjoyed playing the various different sports or events that we had. My class always did fairly well.
