Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands to Hold Winter Family Fun Events

AUGUSTA, Maine – Building on the success of previous years, the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands in coming weeks is sponsoring six exciting days of winter events at state parks around Maine.

During January and February, Maine families and other visitors will be able to enjoy fun, affordable, day-long outdoor activities at some of the most beautiful locales in the state, according to Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands (BPL) officials.

Two major ice-fishing derbies will be held, as will four winter-fun days when families can try out such activities as cross-country skiing, sledding, snow shoeing and dog sled rides. 

“This is the third year of our ‘Take It Outside’ winter events, and we’re hoping for as great a response as we have seen in the past,” Will Harris, BPL director, said.
