Snow just in time for Winter Fest

Though the weather was unseasonably warm and the ground bare two days earlier, a cold front and a few inches of snow arrived in time to provide just the right conditions for Winter Fest on February 18!

DRA partnered with Great Salt Bay School’s PTO to host the festival, celebrating the best of winter with outdoor fun.

The ice rink was open for skating, a campfire burned nearby for toasting marshmallows, and Education Director Sarah Gladu was on hand with her sled dogs to offer rides on the dogsled. Many kids and adults took advantage of the fresh snow for sledding on the big hill, as well as a good-natured snowball fight.

Winter Fest takes place every February as part of Great Maine Outdoor Weekend.
