ROCKLAND — Rockland FrostFest will be Saturday, Feb. 15, from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., at Harbor Park.
Launched by 10-year-old nonprofit Rockland Main Street, Inc., the first-annual festival is designed for all ages, free and open to the public.
“A variety of community groups have committed to the programming and logistics,” said event organizers Sierra Dietz and Fred Newcomb, in a news release. “FrostFest will be a day for young and old to enjoy fun and games, while connecting with friends and neighbors in the heart of Rockland.”
Intended to be a "cabin fever" breaker of sorts, the event’s program will include a Mardi Gras parade, figure skating demos on the Harbor Park ice rink, horse-and-carriage rides, fire pits, a public free skate session, games supplied by Rockland Rotary, an ice hockey demo, outdoor games, a raffle drawing for a generator, and more.
Warm up at a hot cocoa bar and melt s'mores at roaring fire pits.
“Music, local food, and plenty of community spirit for one and all,” said FrostFest.
Participating organizations include Rockland’s Rec Center, Rockland Public Library, Rockland Lobster Festival, Rockland Rotary, and others.
Sponsors of Rockland FrostFest are Rockland Lobster Festival, Brooks Trap Mill, Camden National Bank and others.
