WinterFest Highlights (with pics!)

Posted By on Wed, Feb 22, 2012 at 1:23 AM

Even if winter never showed, the rest of us had a great time at WinterFest. That goes especially for the Source staff—we got to spend most of the weekend in the Bent Lounge, 20 feet from the only bar at the festival serving hard drinks. (Sigh). It's a hard life. 

Here's some other highlights from the weekend. 

The plethora of food options was killer this year, with new carts like Real Food Street Bistro making WinterFest their debut. Here Country Catering employee Cody Serbus pulls a slow-roasted pig off a spit.

The snow sculptures were a little lackluster this year in the 40+ degree weather, but the ice sculptures, which were shaded from the sun under a tent, stuck around much longer. James Royal demonstrates expert little-bitty saw-wielding technique with his "Rocket Man."

RailJams on Friday and Saturday nights brought out the crowds. Here Jordan Welter wows the peeps in the snowboarding division of the event.

The music acts are definitely pretty sweet at WinterFest. Local Hero MOsley WOtta pumped out the love on the Main Stage on Saturday night. 

Later on Saturday night, The Coup, out of Oakland rocked the crowd with political hip-hip.

On Sunday, Snow Warriors took to an icy, muddy and obstacle-filled 5k race course with one goal in mind- victory at all costs, including dignity.

All in all, WinterFest was a reminder that our town knows how to throw a winter party, even if the weather decides to be all sunny and nice and whatever.
