The Atlantic



The world may be shrinking, but you’d never know it from the number and diversity of its cultural, sporting, and holiday events. The 19851986 Winter Travel Planner is a compendium of the best events from now through April—yacht regattas, jazz and classical-music festivals, billfish tournaments, Christmas and New Year’s celebrations, skiing competitions, winter carnivals, pre-Lenten Carnivals, kite festivals, re-enactments of dramatic moments in the American Revolution, marathons, even a 20,000-person tug-of-war.

Warm thanks are extended to national and state tourist boards for furnishing the detailed information that was used to compile these listings. It is suggested that you check with the tourist boards or your travel agent to confirm the dates of events listed.
