Winterfest 2014 has begun. Yesterday was opening day of Greensboro's pop-up ice rink, which has relocated to Barnhardt Street, just south of the railroad tracks at South Elm Street. The opening coincided with the last City Market of the season. A passle of Chick-fil-A cows and the WFMY News 2 crew were on hand to kick off the event. Weather reporter Grant Gilmore and anchor Julie Luck, with their heartfelt smiles and enthusiastic words, helped put the crowd in a festive mood.
Greensboro is so lucky to have such great, family-oriented events. If you are looking for something to do this weekend, head down to the rink to skate and sled. Also, the Piedmont Interfaith Council (PIC) is holding their 32nd Ecumenical Thanksgiving Celebration this Sunday at 4pm at Dana Auditorium on the Guilford College Campus. Canned food donations are being collected. While Grant and Julie might not be there, you will definitely feel connect to the community and the holidays is you attend the PIC event. All faith groups are invited. Happy Friday!
