PORTLAND — WinteRush begins Friday Feb. 11 with a ski and snowboard competition in Monument Square, followed by a weekend of outdoor public activities.
Lack of snow foiled the city’s planned outdoor winter celebration last year. This year, snowshoeing, snowman- and snow fort-building are planned.
Family activities are scheduled from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb 12, at Deering Oaks.
The Downtown Showdown begins at 5 p.m. Friday in Monument Square. Skiers and snowboarders will compete on a man-made hill in the square.
