Throwback Thursday Jan-22-2014

The past two weeks we have learned quite a bit about winter carnivals that used to be held right here in Manchester. From the crazy diving Brownies, to the “longest” sled in the world, Manchester sure loved celebrating winter! 1927 was no exception!

The Amoskeag Textile Club hosted the Snow Shoe Carnival which consisted of a parade and some snow shoe races at Textile Field, which is now known as Gill Stadium. I can’t seem to find any information connecting the Snow Shoe Carnival to the Winter Carnival that the Brownies participated in, but it seems that there was a myriad of events all winter long. Why not right?!

Below are some images of the parade and snow shoe races courtesy of the Manchester Historic Association!
