The Owls Head Transportation Museum will hold its fourth annual WinterFest — a winter transportation festival — on Saturday, Feb. 20 and Sunday, Feb. 21.

The two-day event will feature Lombard Log Hauler demonstrations, Model T snowmobile rides, an antique snowmobile parade, as well as many fun family-oriented activities.

Owners of pre-1990 snowmobiles, snowplows, snow blowers, sleighs, toboggans, sleds or ice boats are invited to exhibit their winter vehicles and receive free admission to the event.WinterFest will run from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Snowmobile owners from Maine and beyond are expected to attend, and several vintage snowmobile collectors and experts will showcase some of their rare models.

The Maine Snowmobile Association will once again be involved with the show, and all MSA Club members will receive a discounted admission. All visitors under the age of 18 will be admitted free.

Snowmobile clubs are also invited to reserve a free booth space to promote their club. Again this year there will be a Snow Vehicle Marketplace where people can bring their snowmobiles to sell or shop to purchase a new snowmobile. Interested sellers should contact the museum at 594-4418 for information about arranging for a vendor space. There are also a limited number of indoor vendor spaces available for companies wishing to display and sell their winter items.

Other invited clubs and organizations include the Model T Snowmobile Club, New Hampshire Snowmobile Museum, Maine Antique and Vintage Snowmobile Association, Chickawaukie Ice Boaters Club, Skyline Farm, Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, and all 290 Maine snowmobile clubs.

Displays and exhibits will be both indoors and outdoors. A highlight will be a demonstration of a 1914 steam-powered Lombard Log Hauler. The 15-ton machine is currently on loan from the Harry Crooker family. There are also horse-drawn logging demonstrations planned. At noontime each day there will be a parade of antique snowmobiles and snowplows. One of the highlights of last year’s show was a snowblowing demonstration featuring a 1960s-era Walter Snow Fighter that demolished a large section of five-foot high snow banks.

The museum’s Piper Super Cub has been put on skis for the season and will be available for coastal plane rides, weather permitting. Aerial views of the Camden Hills or Penobscot Bay islands in winter are spectacular. Rides purchased at the event may be taken at any time during the year.

Other planned activities for the day include snowmobile movies in the museum’s auditorium, antique snowmobile demonstrations, horse-drawn wagon (or sleigh) rides, and rides in the museum’s 1926 Model T Ford snowmobile. Children’s activities including the popular styrofoam airplane workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Also, on Feb. 20 at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. there will be horse-drawn logging demonstrations, including a team of draft horses lead by Jim Ostergard of Appleton. Ostergard will explain harnessing and hook ups, twitching logs, give wood scoot demonstrations and show a log arch for moving large logs.  On both days, Jeff Miller of Flintlock Forge in Waldoboro will set up his 18th-century vintage forge to do demonstrations of making horseshoes and carriage parts.

The event will take place with or without snow. For more information about the event or to reserve a space for a snowmobile club or vendor booth, contact the museum at 594-4418 or info@ohtm.org.
