The Damariscotta River Association is celebrating Great Maine Outdoor Weekend and invites the public to come enjoy a variety of winter activities on Sunday, Feb. 5 at the fourth annual Winter Fest. The event will be held from noon to 3 p.m. at DRA Round Top Farm, 3 Round Top Lane, Damariscotta. The event will feature outdoor games, sledding, a dog-sledding demonstration, a campfire with hot dogs and marshmallows, ice skating, and an animal-tracks craft in the warming hut.
“This region offers many wonderful outdoor, fun opportunities regardless of the time of year,” said Sarah Gladu, the DRA’s director of education. “We think there will be just enough snow to sled on the hills and ice to skate on the rink, but even if not, we will offer outdoor games, a fire for cooking hot dogs, a guided hike, and nature exhibits. There will be something for everyone.”
Numerous pairs of loaner skates are available to borrow at no cost and the warming hut will be open. Bring sleds for sledding. All activities are free of charge. Hot dogs are $1 each.
