The shortest month is not short on things to do - in fact - it's positively bursting with fun. Newport is celebrating its 31st Annual Newport Winter Festival from February 15-24. Boasting more than 150 events, including a chili cook-off, Polar Pineapples, ice sculpting, a teddy bear tea, and more, the festival offers something for everyone. But the fun isn't contained to Newport alone. There are events going on throughout the state this month that will entertain you until March. Enjoy!
