The Raleigh Winterfest returns to Downtown Raleigh on December 3rd, transforming City Plaza into a winter escape. And while the ice skating rink serves as the centerpiece for Raleigh Winterfest, the two-month celebration also includes carriage rides, sledding ramps and performances by local musicians and dancers.
An estimated 15,000 people visited last year’s Winterfest, and it takes a lot of volunteers to make it work.
