Lowell This Weekend: Winterfest! Thur Feb 5 - Sat Feb 7

"Families from around New England can celebrate the wonders of winter at Lowell’s Annual Winterfest Celebration, February 5th - 7th, 2009. After all, how can they resist free ice skating, face painting, magic shows, tundra rides, fireworks and paling around with the lovable Lowla Bear? The Lowell Winterfest also includes crafts, live entertainment, a soup bowl competition and the crowd pleasing favorite – the National Human Dogsled Championships.

Lowell’s National Human Dog Sled Championship is a staple of Lowell’s annual Winterfest celebration. More than 60 sleigh teams will compete for title of “top dog” as they race to the finish down 200 yards of icy tundra. Each team consists of 6 people. A rider, a musher, and four people who pull the sled. Two teams race at a time. And if that’s not funny enough, wait until you see them in full costume. In years past there have been cave men, penguins and football players among the costumed competitors."
For a complete listing of events, please visit the official website: http://www.lowellwinterfest.org

Closing this Friday, February 6th at 119 Gallery:

"A former industrial warehouse district, Fort Point Channel, Boston has been home to hundreds of artists for nearly 30 years. To open 2009, 119 Gallery has invited a group of “visiting artists” to Lowell. Over 20 artists represent one of Boston’s oldest and most fertile Boston artists’ neighborhoods. The artwork ranges from traditional media to hybrid techniques that defy description: book art, collage, drawing, drawing on film, illuminated sculpture, illustration, painting, photography sculpture, and wall panels. Curated by Joanne Kaliontzis."
