U.S. National Toboggan Championships This Weekend [VIDEO]
It's a big weekend at the Camden Snow Bowl!
Hundreds of teams, some dressed in costume, will take to the 400-foot-long wooden chute and reach speeds of up to 40 mph for the 2018 U.S. National Toboggan Championships, otherwise known as the "Mardi Gras Of Maine!" Not only is this a whole bunch of fun for the teams but for those watching as well! With great food, music, vendors with just about everything for sale, and plenty of fast-paced fun, you just can't go wrong!
The fun starts this Friday, February 9th, when the Toboggan chute opens to public and racers alike. It's only $5 per rider for the ride of a lifetime! Don't forget your toboggan!
Official racing happens both Saturday and Sunday, featuring 2, 3 and 4 person teams with names like Hot Ruddered Bums, The Four Ash Wipes, Poop Chute, Wood Boogers, and Old Enough To Know Better.
