Mainers Race Lawnmowers on The Ice in Subzero Temps
A lot of times I will start an article with "Only in Maine". And, most of the time, I use it because it's some silly thing that involves an activity you probably wouldn't see anywhere outside of our state lines. Well, I think I have found the one. Seriously guys, I think I have found the MOST "Only in Maine" Maine story I have ever written. It's happened. We've peaked.
What you're about to see is literally people racing garden tractors on the ice in good ol' Lincolnville, Maine. Organized by Thunder Valley Mower Drag Races, drivers and spectators alike gathered on the frozen surface of Norton Pond on Saturday afternoon for the big race.
According to the Kennebec Journal, this organization is the same one that typically organizes similar (summertime) events at the Union Fair and Threshers Brewing.
