Celebrate Winter at Tower Hill at our First Annual Winter Carnival!

With or without snow, all kinds of activities will delight children and families of all ages. Programs will include indoor and outdoor scavenger hunts, live Alpacas from Great Rock Alpacas of Barre, Mass., outdoor winter games, ice sculpture demonstrations by Rhode Island artist Sean Harrington, guided walks focused on finding animal tracks, spotting winter birds, and identifying trees in winter. Children's crafts, face painting, and a concert with Apple Country Music Together will round out the day. If the "white stuff" does indeed make an appearance, visitors will have the opportunity to create snow sculptures and snowshoes will be available for rent. If not, we will build fairy houses in the woods instead! Popcorn and hot cider or cocoa will also be available.

Whatever the conditions, Tower Hill's Orangerie, Limonaia, and Winter Garden are always a delight, in addition to the beautiful woodland trails.
