The Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Amesbury Chamber of Commerce held their first Family Appreciation Day “Winter Festival” recently at the Amesbury Sports Park.
Attendees who purchased discounted tickets to the event participated in unlimited snow tubing, magic shows, face painting and a bonfire. Many people spent time in the park’s restaurant and bar enjoying food and drink.
The event was held in two waves, one in the afternoon and one in the evening to give everyone an opportunity to participate. Haverhill Chamber officials said about 400 adults and children turned out for the event, even though the temperature was in the teens.
They plan to hold the event again next year as it was such a success. The event was sponsored by Smith Motor Sales of Haverhill.
