Couldn't you just dream of walking down a path that's lined with candy canes? Do you want to enter an ice sculpture competition or chill in a heated igloo in the middle of the city one day? If your answer is "yes," then hopping in a car and checking out the winter 2020 festivals in the U.S. is worth your time. These magical events will give you heart eyes from the moment you see their spectacular s'mores-making stations or elaborate fireworks shows.
In true Elsa from Frozen fashion, you won't even mind being outside in the freezing cold because you'll be wandering around a palace made of ice, or trying all the chocolate-flavored treats you can find. You may be learning how to ski, shopping while drinking hot chocolate, or cheering on a local team in a very competitive hockey game. To say the very least, you'll be in a winter wonderland, complete with campfires and camera-worthy moments.
Of course, a little bit of planning is required before you head off to these festivals and have snow much fun. For example, you need to know when and where they're happening, and what you can expect. Here are seven winter festivals that are worth checking out. (Be sure to pack your blanket scarves, gloves, and oversized coats.)
