      It's that cold: Some Snowtown festivities cancelled in Watertown

      You know it's too cold outside when a place that bills itself as Snowtown USA cancels some of its winter festival events.

      The organizers of this week's Snowtown festival in Watertown in northern New York cancelled some of the outdoor activities as temperatures plunged below zero across the North Country. Scratched from this week's lineup were a snowshoe tour, horse-drawn carriage rides, dog sled rides and a snow softball tournament.

      Organizers moved other outdoor activities to indoor facilities. The events run through Sunday.

      Watertown, located 65 miles north of Syracuse, revived its Snowtown festival for the first time in 17 years.
