Winter has been rough this year in Maine. Did you know it was the third snowiest February in Portland since 1882?
Bridgton alone recorded 50-inches in February that was fueled by a Feb. 8-9 blizzard. But we’re thawing out, and hopefully you are too.
It’s time to leave winter behind and start thinking about a getaway to the Bridgton-Maine Lakes region and Highland Lake Resort. With cute shopping and little eateries, it’s the perfect weekend escape from the winter doldrums. A spring fling in Bridgton can be the perfect way to kick start your summer. But remember, it’s not just Bridgton you can visit.
Other nearby towns and villages, like Naples, Harrison, Fryeburg, Lovell and Casco, have different events throughout the year as well so there’s definitely something different every weekend.
Enjoy a Farmer’s Market on the weekends or an event at the Fryeburg Fairgrounds.
The big event this month is Sheepfest in Denmark, which is a quick 10 minute drive away. The event takes place April 20th at the Denmark Arts Center.
It’s a neat event where flocks of sheep are sheared to create wool for fleeces and other clothing apparel. There are demonstrations, a market, and gift items. Kids will love seeing all the animals and their babies! Alpacas, sheep, goats and bunnies are all on hand and love to get close and personal with humans.
Each month there’s some cool event that’s unique to Maine and the lakes region. So whenever you think there’s not going to be a lot to do, think again and get away to a unique Maine Lakes vacation!
