It’s the most wonderful time of the year in Sag Harbor once again. No, not Christmas. Saturday, February 23 marks the ninth annual HarborFrost! This massive celebration of winter fun takes place at many locations throughout the village, including on the Long Wharf, Windmill Beach, Sag Harbor Variety Store and John Jermain Memorial Library.

Attractions will highlight the wonders of both fire and ice, with fireworks and a fire juggler bringing intense heat and a frosty plunge and ice carvings offering icy cold. Registration for the plunge takes place at 1 p.m., an hour before the dive in the freezing harbor. It takes a $20 donation to the Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance to participate, but those who don’t wish to take the plunge may donate to this life-saving emergency rescue service as well.

Adults and children of all ages will enjoy exciting demonstrations, fun activities, delectable treats, special deals and more throughout Sag Harbor from morning ’til night. Plan to spend the day exploring all that this art-rich former whaling village has to offer.
