Old Town To Celebrate Cold, In Hopes Of Keep Folks Out Of It
Rather than make complaints about the cold, folks in Old Town plan to celebrate it, and try and do something about it!
For the second year in a row, the City of Old Town will be putting on a cool, weekend-long party to raise money to keep some of its citizens warm and cozy this winter!
Old Town's Main Street will be a bustle with food and activities for both young and old. There will be an ice bar, beer garden, food trucks, a baked potato bar, a chili cook-off, smores, heated tents, fire pits, and hot chocolate.
People can go to check out the live Ice Sculpture demonstrations and then stay for the big game.
Organizers say they will be showing the University of Maine Hockey game on the Big Screen on Saturday night.
"Come support several non-profit groups and our DTOT Business Community. The Saturday pre-game reception in the tent is a ticketed event and tickets will go on sale this week! If we have enough snow by then bring a sled for the sledding hill!"
The festivities will slightly impact the traffic flow of that Main Street area of town, but not for too long.
The day has been designed to not only allow folks to get outside and have some fun but to also raise funds to provide heating assistance to local families in need.
Anyone interested in more information can find out more by emailing Old Town's Director of Economic & Community Development, EJ Roach, at ERoach@old-town.org.
