Residents of the Merrimack Valley and beyond had plenty of reason to venture out into yesterday's dreary weather for the city's annual Winterfest celebration.

It's good to know Lowell lives on another planet enjoying their bread & circus while the rest of us were shoveling the snow off our rooftops. Only Dracut and Chelmsford had those problems.

Anyone read today's Lowell Sun - It seems that in light of the human dog sled competition, Lynch may have finally admitted that a lot Lowell of Lowell DPW hours went into the prep for the Winterfest even tho he told the Council that there was very little time spent on it. But let's see - time hauling snow when there was none, fixing the "racetrack", cleaning the streets better, etc. wasn't exactly free. So we , the taxpayers, were paying for it when our money could have better spent elsewhere.

The city has bills everything to the privately funded winterfest, this is just another Lynching because for some reason he doesn't like to do business locally so he implies things that are not true. Next year the Winterfest commitee sould just have a local contractor do it instead of giving the city workers the overtime pay!

Winterfest: this is yet another event ruined by drunks. The one year I went a drunken broad who was stumbling about 50 feet ahead of me bent over and threw up. It was a VERY loud nasty hurl which I'm sure remained frozen in the shadow of City Hall for many a day.

She composed herself and said to her equally drunk friend "let's go to the Worthen..".
