For football fans, the two weeks between the Conference Championship games and the Super Bowl is an awful long time. For the first time since September, there are no weekend football games to watch. And many Patriot fans just might say the heck with the Super Bowl. So, what does one do with all of the free time?...
This Saturday and Sunday, January 25th & 26th, the Down East Sled Dog Club presents The Mushers Bowl, where you will find competitive Sled Dog Racing and Skijoring Races at Bridgton's Five Field Apple Orchards. This five-mile course is considered the most technically challenging sled dog course in the Northeast but its design also makes it very spectator-friendly.
Admission to the Mushers Bowl is only $5 for both days (parking included). Children five and under are free. Races start at 10 am each day. The South Bridgton Congregational Church hosts a warming hut where soups and baked goods will be sold.
