The town of Lee held it’s first-annual Cabin Fever Festival February 17th-24th, 2012. This week-long event took place during school vacation week and offered fun, free events daily for all ages.
The festival’s mission was to help Berkshire residents to break out of the winter blues and “Catch the Fever”. To show their support, Lee businesses sponsored the festival and/or offered deals or specials, valid all week as incentive for residents to bundle up and make their way downtown.
Together we succeeded in taking a creative, low-cost approach to a fun community festival, turning the historically slow week in February into a unique fun-filled week benefiting shopkeepers and residents alike.
Event highlights included a “Strut Your Stuff” Bathing Suit Race down Main Street, a live ice sculpting exhibition, improve comedy night by the Berkshire Improv Troupe RBIT, an ice fishing derby, Taste of Lee restaurant night and more.
