Each year on this blog Joe spreads the word about Winter Kids, an organization that helps children develop healthy lifelong habits through fun, outdoor winter activity. If you grew up in Maine like Joe did, you know the importance of outdoor play-- especially in the winter when we tend to spend most of our time indoors! On Saturday, January 18th, 2020, hundreds of Mainers will experience the thrill of sledding, snowshoeing, ice skating, and much more at Winter Kids' annual Welcome to Winter Festival. At Payson Park in Portland from 12:30pm - 2:30pm, kids and families will enjoy great sledding and snowshoeing, healthy snacks, raffle prizes, warm winter giveaways, a welcome from city officials, and more. Find out more about this wonderful organization here and more about the event here. Joe says have fun and stay warm!
