Island Pond Winter Carnival this weekend

in Arts and Entertainment/Island Pond

ISLAND POND — The Island Pond Chamber of Commerce is inviting everybody to attend their Winter Carnival this Saturday and Sunday February 13th and 14th.

The event will feature many perennial favorites including hay rides by Narrow Gate Farm, pastries and hot chocolate by Bob the Baker, sugar on snow by the Osborne Family, pond golf-in and the bonfire provided by the Twelve Tribes.

New this year is their first annual Chili Cook Off.

Due to the lack of snow this year a couple events have been canceled including the open house at the Northwoods Stewardship Center, the cardboard sled race and the snow sculpture contest.

They have however added two new events in their place including making natural bird feeders at the Welcome Center and the coloring contest held at and sponsored by The Pond’s Edge Pub & Brewery.

You can view the complete up to date schedule on the events page of their website at
