Shocking but true, we don't all enjoy football or eating our weight in hot wings. Here are 5 things to do this weekend in Maine, besides watching the Super Bowl.
1. The Portland Polar Dip at East End Beach
Join a host of hearty souls as they plunge into the refreshing (read bone chilling) waters of Casco Bay all to raise funds so children with life-threatening illnesses and their families can spend a week at Camp Sunshine for free. Its not too late to sign up! And if blue is not your preferred choice of lip color, its a great event to spectate. Registration begins at 1pm, the polar dip is at 2pm.
