Please join the Nashawannuck Pond Steering committee and friends out on the pond this Saturday for a peek into the past of ice harvesting in New England!
Easthampton was once part of the great ice industry begun by Massachusetts entrepreneur Frederick Tudor. Join historian Dennis Picard on the ice (weather and conditions permitting) and try your hand at using an antique pond saw and other tools of the trade. Dennis will also spin tales of the life of an ice harvester in New England. This is a FREE event and fun for the whole family. Park in the Municipal Lot at 50 Payson Ave. across from the pond. The Cub Scouts will have hot cocoa available.
Part of Easthampton’s 6th Annual Winterfest
