Crystalline sculptures, food, fun at 11th annual Camden Winterfest
Camden — Hundreds of people gathered in the vicinity of the Camden Public Library to celebrate the town's 11th annual Winterfest Jan. 26.
Teams of ice carvers whittled away at 300-pound blocks of ice during the event, bringing life to such creations as skis, a dinosaur egg, and the Mount Battie tower complete with its holiday star.
Food donated by local businesses was sold to benefit the library, while those who wandered inside could find kids crafts, face painting, and the musical stylings of the All That Jazz band.
Skaters enjoyed the crisp ice of the amphitheater's temporary rink, while local musicians Hazel Delehey and Clio Berta of Camden and DJ Terry Frank of Global Grooves rocked so hard that music could be heard across the entire harbor.
Camden Winterfest is presented by the Camden Public Library, Winterfest Committee and several local sponsors.
