What to Do: 2/1/14

Posted: Updated:

We have a few ideas for your Saturday, February 1, 2014.


If you're already thinking about which summer camp you might want to send the kids to, you can check them out at the Burlington Hilton from 10 AM to 2 PM. Representatives from dozens of camps and schools from all over the region will be there so you can ask them face-to-face about their programs.


Are you ready for a change from your ordinary dinner routine? Then come have Breakfast for Dinner and help support the Ascutney Volunteer Fire Department from 5pm - 7pm at the Martin Memorial Hall - $10 for adults, $5 for children 5-10, and under 5 is free.


And there's the 11th Annual Woodchuck Festival event in West Pawlet. It's a fundraiser sponsored by the West Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department and the Ladies Fire Auxiliary. It is a family day of fun and good food for all ages.


The Craftsbury XC Ski Marathon is happening on February 1. Race starts at Highland Lodge in Greensboro and traverses three towns finishing on scenic Craftsbury Common. There's food and aid stations every 4 to 7 kilometers.


Head out for The Green Mountain Club's 18th Annual Winter Trails Festival at the GMC Visitor Center in Waterbury Center. The fun starts early, at 8:30 AM, and continues throughout the day until 5 at GMC's Headquarters. There will be equipment demos, guided adventures and educational workshops.


Upright Citizen Brigade Theatre has been home to some of the biggest stars in fresh, irreverent comedy today. Join their touring company for a show that has never been seen before, will never be seen again, and will never be forgotten. The cast is hand-picked from the best improv comedians in New York City and Los Angeles, performers who are the next wave of comedy superstars. Tickets $20, free for students, faculty, and staff, available at the door of the Whittemore Theater.


Over 5+ miles, 45+ obstacles, trail running, hills, mud, ice, and snow? All the braggin' rights go the person who can complete the most laps in 8 hours! That's in Benson. For more information, visit: www.shalehilladventure.com


11th Annual Collegiate A Cappella Concert returns to the Latchis Theater in downtown Brattleboro. This year's lineup features six great groups, including the Dartmouth Aires and Tufts Beelzebubs. For more information, visit: www.brattleboromuseum.org


Organizers say there will be lots of different activities including a first time Nordic Ski Trail on Memphremagog, a Memorial Broomball tournament in honor of Guy Fortin, ice structures, very popular Snowmobile Radar runs on the lake, Pond Hockey Tournament and an indoor Kids Winter Carnival to benefit the big Gardner Park Restoration Project getting underway in town. That goes all day until 6:30 p.m. For more information, visit newportrecreation.org
