    I wish I could've met up with everyone, but with the shuttle I ran a little late and didn't get there until about 11:30.

    Got there 5 min before 11 not knowing that some roads were block so ended up going in circle for parking and after like 35min found a parking far away.

      Candido, I did notice they did block off more roads than necessary. Plus they didn't have on their website that there was parking at the United Church and out near 154 in a few places. Sorry you had such a difficult time.

      Me too, I was late, I saw a lot of people with big cameras, I wasn't sure if they were from the meet up, but a lot fun

      I hung around the flag pole until 11:15 met a few of us.

    Despite the wind I had a great time!

      I have an hours drive to Chester. Bringing my son along.

      February 17, 2013

  • Vicki M.

    Haven't been home all day, sorry for getting back so late! As of right now, 11:05 pm, we are still on. The event pretty much ends after the tractor parade, which is at 2 pm. The main issue tomorrow is the wind.

    I'll attend. It was funny cause I was thinking of doing some photo shooting for Ice Carving, so defiantly will show up.

      I think the Chester event website said it's on rain/snow/shine, so we're going to go...unless there's an absolutely dangerous snow coming down. I keep hearing this one is going out to sea!! We're an hour to the north, so will be leaving early.

    Sigh, can't make it. Have fun and post those pics!

    February 16, 2013

    Something came up can't make it.

    I just all attendees an email with information for Sunday. If you didn't receive it or signed up to after 2/11 I put it under the tab MORE>Files.
    Lets hope Mother Nature cooperates with the good weather!

    Hey folks, just a few notes on my little hometown! Parking is going to be a premium in town. I will be sending out an email with parking areas and other cool things to check out in Chester mid next week.. I can tell you all now, that we will be meeting in front of the rotary/flag pole in the center of town on the corner of Maple and Main. I most likely will be parking at the old homestead, short 1/2 mile walk for me. Any questions about the area feel free to drop me a note!

    1 · January 24, 2013

  • John B.

    Vicki, do you have a central location for everyone to meet at and then split up from there?

    January 23, 2013

    • Dot

      Not Vicki, but in the past we've met in the parking lot right in the center of 'downtown' Chester - behind the old stone arts building. That's where the ice carvers are set up. Parking is always at a premium, so go early. ;)

    The time has been updated.

  • Dot

    Yes, 7 pm seems very late, Charles as most of the events are during the day.

    January 12, 2013

  • Charles D.

    Question on the time. Is 7pm the right time everyone is meeting?

    January 12, 2013

  • Vicki M.

    I'm going to try to make this one. This is the sleepy little village I got older in!

    Can anyone tell me more about this event. Sounds interesting.

    December 5, 2012

    • Dot

      Chester is a lovely little river town with great shops and restaurants. The Carnivale is great fun - especially watching/shooting pics of the ice carvers. Well worth attending as long as the weather cooperates.

  • Dot

    This is a wonderful event - have wanted to get back there for a couple of years!!
