Baby, it's cold outside. But temperatures will be warming up — slightly — this weekend. For families gutsy enough to brave the outdoors, a handful of winter festivals, with activities ranging from candlelight snowshoeing to snow volleyball, will help combat cabin fever. Just be sure to bundle up!

Shelburne Farms is transformed into a bustling winter wonderland — with sled-dog rides, snow play, popcorn-ball making and face painting — during the Shelburne Winterfest

The capital city hosts Frostival, three days of physical activities, from hula hooping to Scottish country dancing. On Sunday afternoon, winter games, singing and a raging bonfire at the North Branch Nature Center's Ice on Fire celebration cap off the festivities.     

The Stowe Winter Carnival winds down on Saturday with an ice-carving competition. 

Lake Morey Resort hosts Ice Sports University Weekend, with classes and competitions in pond hockey, curling, ice fishing, snowshoeing and more.
