Over 20 Celebrity Egg Riders and dozens of supporters took part in this year’s Dysart’s Snowmobile Ride-in Weekend and Pine Tree Camp Egg Ride — with Bananas T. Bear and Slugger the Sea Dog there to kick off the ride!
By far, this 51st annual event brought out the biggest group of supporters who came to cheer on the riders and join the ride. The parade cruised through snowmobile trails throughout Hermon with Egg Riders’ snowmobile suits filled with eggs. Each egg represented a $50 donation.
Weekend events included a WABI-TV5 telethon, live auction attended by over 250 people and a Radar Run hosted by Penobscot Snowmobile Club. All month long, area retailers sold window eggs to raise funds. The money raised from the weekend supports Pine Tree Camp’s open door policy, which allows Maine kids and adults with disabilities to attend camp regardless of their family’s ability to pay tuition.
