It's time for Bromley's 2nd Annual Spring Fling Weekend, March 20 and March 21.
On both days, all-day lift tickets are just $39, Bromley's famous barbeque opens on the Sun Deck at 11 a.m., bounces on The Trampoline Thing and Face Painting are free from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and rides on the incredible ZipRider, The Sun Mountain Flyer, are just $15 each or two rides for $20.
Saturday's lunacy kicks off at 1 p.m., with the always-popular, nearly-always embarrassing yet potentially lucrative Pond Skimming contest. There are categories for all ages with prizes for the Best Run and Best Costume in each.
In the Wild Boar Tavern, hot live reggae-rock-roots-dub-ska and rhythm and blues - and ice cold Pabst! - are on all on tap with the "classic dance boogie skank" of the The Equalites, from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. At 4 p.m., slap on the sunscreen and head for the volleyball court, right in front of the Sun Deck, for some free, pick-up Snow Volleyball.
Come Sunday, March 21, at 1 p.m., don't miss the mayhem at the Cardboard Box Derby, with cool prizes for the Fastest Racer and Best Racer Design (only cardboard and duct tape may be used in the racers construction, and all participants must wear helmets).
Registration for all events takes place at the Information Booth, in the base lodge, from 9 a.m. to noon on the day of the event.
Bromley Mountain is on Route 11, six miles east of Manchester.
