From their website:
“The Camden Winterfest returns for its 10th annual community celebration of winter on Saturday January 28th,2012. Presented by The Camden Public Library and the Winterfest Committee along with local sponsors.
The centerpiece of Winterfest activity remains the Community Ice Carving Event.Community members transform ordinary blocks of ice into crystaline ice sculptures using the traditional tools of the ice-carving artisan. Chef Tim Pierce of the Samoset Resort donates his time to teaching the craft of ice sculpting.
With or without snow families are encouraged to come and play. A merry band of culinary volunteers serve a variety of delicious hot soups and light snacks donated by local restaurants. Children’s crafts will be in the Picker room.The warm rotunda of the library hosts live music by All That Jazz.
The Winterfest Committee has joined with a group of ice skating enthusiasts to create, in the Camden Amphitheatre, an ice skating rink for annual free, season-long use by the community!”
