We had such a great time. This was our first year going to the Ben & Jerry's Winter Festival and it was on my daughter's birthday, so her special treat was going to the "ice cream factory."

The free tour was great, since there were so many people there, we did have to wait 30 minutes for a tour.

The samples were fantastic, I'd say they were probably half a scoop.

And the games (darts, buried treasure, scavenger hunt) for the kids and adults were wonderful, it was nice to walk away with some nice souvenirs.

80% of the festival was free of charge, even the GMC coffee for the adults :)

Once again, we had a great time and can't wait to go again next year. Thanks Find & Go Seek for posting about this otherwise I would've never known about it!

We had a truly great time at Ben & Jerry's winter festival. There were several games for the kids to play, my 4 yr old loved the snow cone mini golf course. We enjoyed the live music as we wandered around, it really set the mood for a fun day. There were lots of free samples our favorite was the popcorn in the Ben & Jerry buckets, though it was all very good. We loved the dancing Sunday too!

We heard about Ben & Jerry's winter festival through Find & Go Seek. We brought our non perishables as suggested to donate at the event. It was a great way to demonstrate to our kids how everyone can help the community. So glad the suggestion was made on your site and Ben & Jerry's facilitated it....more

We moved to VT about 2 1/2 years ago. Saw the add for Ben & Jerry winter Festival in the local newspapers and at the Find & go Seek and we've been going since.

The people were very nice. Generous samples were everywhere. The snow sculpture were amazing, the games are funs. The price is absolutely right :0)

Every time we go there, we have never been disappointed. We always looking forward to it. Absolutely recommended this place to anybody at any ages!!!! Come to Ben and Jerry Winter Festival, you won't be disappointed. I guaranteed :0)

I'm not saying this to win the contest but the Find&goseek website is truly a big help for me. I always go here to search almost for everything, especially for children activities. GO Find&goseek website. You rock!
