A message from Maine’s largest snowmobile event.  What event you ask?  Oh, let me tell you all about it.

Here are a couple quick video promos highlighting the Rave X stunt show, Northeast SnoCross, a monster truck ride, groomer rodeo and a poker run to name a few.

SnowBOWL – March 2 – March 5, 2023 in Caribou, ME

We are having a large event in Caribou catered to the snowmobile enthusiasts, but has something for everyone, including a week long snowman building competition throughout the City of Caribou.  The event will take place at Spud Speedway and in downtown Caribou, split about 50/50.  The track will host Northeast SnoCross racing Saturday and Sunday, March 4th & 5th.   The track will also host vendors for product display, live demos and services promotion, along with food trucks, beer trucks, and monster truck rides all weekend.  We will have a poker run that begins and ends at the track as well as a guided snowmobile tour to include the old Loring Air Force base.  Check out the B-52 hangar and the ‘border trail’.

In town Caribou will be a free event that starts a week early with a snowman building competition as the buildup.  Homes and businesses will be encouraged to build their very own snowman in their yards, welcoming all SnowBOWL guests to the area.  A casino night with a restaurant/bar crawl starts on Friday night at the Caribou wellness center and ends at the local bar and restaurants.  Along with the Northeast SnowCross racing at Spud Speedway, The SnowBowl has extended its events to include a Groomer Rodeo obstacle course where the club groomer operators will participate and compete for bragging rights to take home the best groomer operator trophy. After Saturdays racing is concluded at Spud Speedway, the party moves to downtown Caribou for a parade of sleds, a monster truck, and groomers making their way to the recreation center where The Rave X, mini X games freestyle snowmobile stunt show, will begin in the middle of town.  Caribou has given us permission to close down the road for the show.  Imagine snowmobiles flipping upside down in the middle of the road.  Cool huh?  The area will be filled with food trucks, a beer garden, DJ music, a bonfire, a sponsors ‘ice wall’ as the photo op backdrop, a life size snow globe, bounce houses, ice skating and a fireworks show to conclude.  Sunday is back at the track to start the Super Poker Run with a chance to win $2,500 for the best hand.  The Super Poker Run can be done on snowmobile or in your vehicle, and you can play as many hands as you want to purchase.  The Super Poker Run will visit 5 local snowmobile clubs for a different experience at each one.  The gamblers will end at the track for their final card.  When the racing wraps up, we announce the winner.

We see this as an opportunity for a win win to the community, businesses, participants, clubs and local charities. We will have welcome banners throughout town, digital signage, selfie iPad station using the ice wall as the backdrop for social media posts.  The City of Caribou is very supportive and has been great to deal with putting on the first annual SnowBowl.

The event is being marketed by the Maine Office of Tourism, Aroostook County Tourism, Live and Work in Maine organization along with all local snowmobile clubs and the 20+ snowmobile social media pages along with the Central Aroostook Chamber of Commerce and the Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce.

The SnowBowl has raised money for Recovery Aroostook by building a 50 foot long snowmobile snow sculpture.  The SnowBowl is raising money for Brian’s Ride cancer fund with the sled ride to the old Loring Air Force Base, hiring the civil air patrol cadets and working with the Shriners.

We will put Caribou, and all we have to offer, on the map.  We are prime for take-off in this area.  I love being a small part of a great community!

See you at the SnowBowl!
