1-27-12: Courtesy of WIVB. ORCHARD PARK, NY (WIVB) – A celebration of winter will draw families to Orchard Park this weekend – and it’s all free. Winterfest will go on with or without snow Sunday. The annual event usually features plenty of snow activities, but Mother Nature isn’t cooperating. But don’t worry – extra events have been added this year. Visitors can take part in karaoke, an obstacle course and a scavenger hunt. Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz says Winterfest shows off one of Orchard Park’s crown jewels – Chestnut Ridge Park. “I came here sometimes as a child. Like I said, this is the people’s county club of western New York. This is where people can come any day of the year and enjoy a fabulous facility during winter, summer, spring, fall, or what we have right now is a combination of spring and winter,” said Poloncarz. All the fun takes place Sunday from 10 am until 4 pm outside the casino at Chestnut Ridge.
