The Big Rockland Chill Street Party

    ROCKLAND—When it feels like six months of winter is the norm in Maine with back-to-back snowstorms, you’ve got to find ways to still get together and have fun.

    The Strand Theatre’s newest winter fest, The Big Rockland Chill, was a big hit on Saturday, January 21, taking over Oak Street and spilling into the theater. The community-wide event started in the afternoon at 1 p.m. and went through the late evening with the last shoe at The Strand Theatre screening, The Shining. Fitting!

    Check out our gallery of frozen yoga, Yeti and Teddy characters, the pet parade, the Planet Pan steel drum band, games, firepits with marshmallows, a disco party, and food on the street, (including a pop-up hotdog station by chef Kerry Alterio from Café Miranda, who said that even though the restaurant is still closed officially, he can’t resist a good community event.)
