MASSENA, N.Y. -- A cure for cabin fever. The Massena Winter Carnival started Thursday and will run throughout Sunday.
The event has a jam-packed schedule, but a few highlights are the parade this Friday, dog sled races on Saturday and a figure skating ice show on Sunday.
It's been decades since the last winter carnival and some are saying it is long overdue.
"It has to be 25, 30 years. But as far as everyone involved, we've pulled the community together and there is a nice buzz about it, everyone's talking about it and that is what we wanted to do," said Michael Gleason, Massena Chamber of Commerce Executive Director.
