Thanks to all who participated in the 8th Annual Nansen Milan Winter Festival! The Burning of the Greens, despite the seemingly fire resistant trees, was a great success with kids from across the Androscoggin Valley skating and sipping cocoa together. Thank you to the Milan Village School PTO for all your help!
On Saturday, families from near and far were drawn to the Milan Hill State Park for sledding, dog sled tours and animal tracking and pelts workshops with Tin Mountain. Many borrowed skis and snowshoes to explore the 15K groomed trail system. Thanks to Smokin’ T’s Bar-B-Que, festival goers also enjoyed a delicious lunch.
On Sunday, racers from across New England and ranging in ages from 3-75 flew through the 14K, 5K and 3K race courses.
