Abstract

Features some of the winter activities that take place in Fort Kent, whose winter assets include wide-open spaces, deep woods and abundant snowfall. Included are the Can-Am Crown International Sled Dog Race in February, Lonesome Pine Trails ski area, and the World’s Largest Snow Plow Parade. Some of the town’s attributes are given like the spoken Valley French language form (a combination of Old French, Quebecois, and English that is heard nowhere else), Fort Kent’s neo-gothic style St. Louis Catholic Church where the homily is given in English but many hymns are sung in French, and the tool most preferred for removing snow from rooftops, the Allagash roof rake, invented by Roland Charette.
