The Lambertville-New Hope Winter Festival kicked off on Saturday with the 4th annual Revolutionary Pub Crawl. More than 80 revelers trekked about the two towns enjoying drinks, light fare and a bit of history at Lambertville Station, Marsha Brown, the Logan Inn, and Great Barn Brewery.

Dressed in Revolutionary attire, crawlers engaged with George Washington, Ben Franklin, the Jersey Grays 3rd Regiment, historian Larry Kidder, and The Schooner Pursuit before heading to Havana for live music and dancing.

Dwyane Dunlevy Entertainment kept everyone laughing and dancing at the Fire & Ice ball Saturday evening, and the crowd also enjoyed seeing live ice sculptures by Roger Wing.

Topping off Winter Festival’s nine days of fun and games is the spicy hot Chili Cook-Off competition at Triumph Brewing Company on Jan. 27, 1-4 p.m., featuring some of the tastiest, tangiest and most original chili created by local restaurants and accompanied by local beers.
