Lambertville-New Hope Winter Festival kicks off with pub crawl

The Lambertville New Hope Winter Festival kicked off Saturday with the 4th annual Revolutionary Pub Crawl.

Eighty crawlers took to the town, enjoying drinks, light fare and a historical presentation at Lambertville Station, Marsha Brown, 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 at the after-party.

This four-time sell-out event is brought to WinterFest by Mountaintop Marketing and Events and will be offered again in the spring, summer and fall of 2019.

The Fire & Ice ball was “quite fiery,” and the icy weather didn’t keep festival enthusiasts away. Dwyane Dunlevy Entertainment kept everyone laughing and dancing. The ice bar featured Stateside Vodka and Weyerbacher Brewery, and live ice sculptures by Roger Wing.

There are free and ticketed, adult and/or family friendly events scheduled all week, such as the Taste of Winterfest, Chili Cook-Off, the two town Soup-A-Thon, Gallery Crawl, and many more. All events can be found on or in the Lambertville New Hope app’s event calendar.
