Hundreds were on hand Saturday for the Maine Lakes Mushers Bowl in Bridgton. The annual dogsled-centric event concludes today.

The Greater Bridgton Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce organizes the Mushers Bowl as well as the accompanying Winter Carnival.

The weekend is aimed at showcasing all the wintry possibilities in the Lakes Region.

Most of the weekend’s activities are free with the purchase of a $3 Mushers Bowl Winter Carnival button, which are on sale at the race center at Five Fields Farm and the event center at Highland Lake.

Folks interested in a first-hand experience can sign up for a 20-minute dogsled ride on Highland Lake for $25. Rides run every half hour from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today.

Dogsled and skijoring races continue today from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., along with a snowshoe hike up Bald Pate Mountain starting at 10 a.m.
