  • We regret to announce that, due to poor snow coverage in Payson Park, and for the safety of all participants, we have decided to cancel this year's Welcome to Winter Festival.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We are super bummed and LOVE this event!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The park is super icy, and with no significant snow in the forecast, it is not safe for participants. Thank you for understanding!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Due to a very full WinterKids event lineup, this event will not be rescheduled.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
To join us at other upcoming events, please check out out our calendar at www.winterkids.org.⁣⁣

Thank you! We look forward to seeing you soon!⁣

⁣The Welcome to Winter Festival was created to welcome new Mainers to winter. With the influx of immigrants and refugees to Portland, there was an opportunity to introduce this new community to the joy and health benefits of winter in Maine….Now the festival welcomes nearly 1,000 people to Payson Park to enjoy sledding, snowshoeing, ice skating, curling, a scavenger hunt, and more.⁣⁣
