FESTIVAL | Lakeside Winter Celebration 

By now, many of us are probably ready to stay inside and just hibernate through the rest of winter. But the resilient Rochesterians who want to fully embrace the tundra can frolic and freeze together at the 29th Annual Lakeside Winter Celebration, held on Sunday, February 10, at Ontario Beach Park (4800 Lake Ave.) and the Port of Rochester Terminal (1000 N. River St.). This year's celebration includes Rec on the Move, a recreation center with winter activities like hockey and snow bowling; the Lake Ontario Wine Festival, with $5 wine samples from across New York State; the annual Chilly Chili Challenge noon-3 p.m.; and a snow sculpture contest with cash prizes, centered on the all-too-appropriate theme of "Winter." But for those who literally want to dive right into winter, the highlight will be the 13th Annual Polar Plunge at noon, with more than 1,000 brave souls jumping into Lake Ontario to raise funds for the New York Special Olympics.

The Lakeside Winter Celebration runs 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Most events are free. For a full list of the day's activities, visit cityofrochester.gov/wintercelebration.
