The city kicked off its 13th annual Winterfest celebration Friday night with Human Dogsled races, the singing of the National Anthem by 10-year-old Brynn Geary,  toasting marshmallows, an impressive soup competition, a microbrew tasting, live music and so much more. The fun continues Saturday. For more information visit www.lowellwinterfest.org.
