Lynden welcomes winter with a day of outdoor art-making, studio activities, scavenger hunts, hikes and parades, and whatever other winter activities--ice skating, painting the pond, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing--the weather permits, sponsored by Davey Tree Expert. This year the highly participatory, artist-driven carnival is curated by Basha Harris and Ethan Kastner of Yours Truly.
