Welcome to Winter Festival Cancelled

In consideration of the safety of our WinterKids friends and families, the 2017 Welcome to Winter event is cancelled due to lack of snow in Payson Park.  The event was scheduled for 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 21.

“We are disappointed to cancel Welcome to Winter, but we still have a lot of activities going on this winter,” says Julie Mulkern, Executive Director of WinterKids.  “While there’s little snow cover along the coast, there’s still a lot of snow throughout Maine for everyone to get out and enjoy.  Thousands of Maine children and their families are enjoying a variety of winter activities through our Passport and FunPass programs, while thousands more are learning while staying active through our school programs.  We also have more fun winter events scheduled in the coming months.”
