Welcome to Winter
Last Saturday I attended the WinterKids Welcome to Winter Festival at Peyson Park in Portland, Maine. The weather was perfect – there was an abundance of fresh snow, but skies were sunny and temperatures weren’t nearly as cold as had been predicted. We were lucky to beat the deep freeze that soon followed.
The Welcome to Winter Festival is an annual event in which WinterKids welcomes “new” Mainers and introduces them to outdoor recreational options for winter. Many of these immigrant children are from countries that don’t see snow. It didn’t take long for them to catch on with sledding. It’s fun for kids of all ages, no matter where they grew up.
I got lots of great photos, mostly using the Big Beercan at the long end. This collage collects my favorites.
