It’s fun for all again this weekend in Maine. Here are some suggestions for winter adventurers to cure cabin fever:
If you cain’t resist a’stompin’ yer feet an’ a’clappin’ yer hands when ya hear bluegrass bein’ played, you might be a…human! Enjoy some of the best of the genre as the Collins Center for the Arts presents Mark O’Connor and the O’Connor Band, Saturday at 8 pm.
For extreme outdoor adventurists (and wannabes), it’s the Banff Film Festival World Tour, coming to the the Grand Theater in Ellsworth tonight, Saturday and Sunday (and, to the Gracie Theater in Bangor next Tuesday and Wednesday). It features short films of outdoor adventure and nature from all over the planet (don’t try some of this stuff at home). For full info and links, see this BDN Maine article.
The whole family will enjoy this outdoor treat: the Ice Harvest at the Curran Homestead, Fields Pond Road in Orrington on Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm. The free public event includes family hands-on participation with antique tools in cutting ice cakes from the more than 15 inch plus thick ice of Fields Pond.
Some seats are still left this weekend for the Penobscot Theater’s musical production of Lumberjacks in Love. If you can’t make it this weekend, the production runs thru Feb. 19. Picture Paul Bunyan/Powerful Pierre-types mixed with mail order brides – sounds like a recipe for rollicking fun and frolic!
Finally, there’s the BIG ONE! For those planning to have their eyes glued to the TV set this Sunday night watching the You-Know-What-if-You-Happen-to-be-a-Native Born-Earth-Dweller: here are 19 fun tips on how you and the kids can get the most of the experience. Go Pats. Or Falcons. We report – you decide!
