The three-day HarborFrost festival in Sag Harbor starts Friday night with the Frost Ball, and continues through Sunday with a hike, pancake breakfast and afternoon concert. In between, there are parties, culinary activities, dancing, shopping and kid-friendly fun.

"HarborFrost is a way to encourage people to get out of the house in the wintertime," says Kelly Connaughton, president of the Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce.
