This year Sandwich's annual Winter Carnival was held on the first Saturday in February. The carnival is a daylong event for locals to have some fun at the coldest, gloomiest time of year. The first main event is the all ages, all abilities, Costumed Cross Country ski race.
Over the course of several hours, Brian Stockman created one of his masterful ice sculptures. This one was a fox, in honor of the Sandwich Central School's mascot.
And the Chili Contest! While Brian was busy carving, anyone who wanted to could go into the school and sample a great variety of chilis, all made by local cooks, with chips, sour cream and grated cheese as add-ons. What a fun way to eat lunch. And then you vote for your favorite.
The Cardboard Sled Derby is another Main Event of the Winter Carnival. There are prizes for all participants in a variety of categories, including best design, longest ride, shortest ride, most colorful, and more.
The day ended with family ice skating, hot chocolate, and hot dogs at Remick Park in North Sandwich. A great time was had by all! Hope you see YOU next year. Thanks to Ole Anderson and the Sandwich Recreation Department for so many activities and events that make this town the wonderful place it is. firstname.lastname@example.org
