New England winter event roundup
Downtown festivities feature CamJam, a competition in Harbor Park where snowboarders and trick skiers compete. In the nearby Amphitheater, a mini-mountain of snow offers kids of all ages opportunities for sledding and building snowmen.
At the community ice-carving event, Tim Pierce, executive chef and master ice carver of the Samoset Resort, will offer how-to guidance to individuals and groups on using traditional artisan tools to create their own ice masterpieces.
Indoor activities at the Camden Public Library include crafts, face painting, and live music by All That Jazz. On Atlantic Avenue, enjoy a variety of hot soups and light snacks donated by local restaurants as a benefit for the library.
The following weekend (Feb. 7-9) the action is centered at the nearby Camden Snow Bowl, a community-owned ski and recreation area hosting the finals of the CamJam competition, and the US National Toboggan Championships.
For 23 years, toboggan racers of all ages have competed to be the fastest team to hurtle down a 400-foot-long chute that empties onto frozen Hosmer Pond. Cheer on teams of two, three, and four people — sometimes dressed in outlandish costumes — as they board traditional wooden toboggans that can reach speeds of up to 30 miles per hour. Other weekend activities at the Snow Bowl include mechanical bull rides, bonfires, music, skiing, snowboarding, tubing, and more. Onsite parking fills early ($8); or take a shuttle ($2) from Village Green in downtown Camden. NEWPORT, R.I.
