Can’t-Miss Winter Events: 2018 edition

Written by: Aimsel Ponti

Friends, it’s time to throw your arms around winter and not let go until, well, April-ish. Are you already sick of scraping your windshield and feeling the down-to-your-bones chill? Are you already dreaming of summers playing Frisbee on the Eastern Prom and standing in line for a cone at Red’s? Are you already stressed out over parking bans and snowbanks? Fear not, dear Mainers, we’re here to help with a Zamboni-sized collection of winter events to help you fall back in love with Maine’s longest season. From festivals to ice bars and everything in between, we think the more you do the less you’ll mind the weather. So put on your favorite flannel shirt and start marking up your calendar. And let’s keep in mind this line from Anton Chekhov: “People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy.” Let’s get happy, Maine.
