Fire Dancing and Hula Hooper Amelia Aglow
Amelia loves to introduce (or reintroduce) people to the hula hoop! She has been adding lights, flames, and flair to all kinds of events since 2010. Her show, which includes spinning multiple hoops and playing with fire, is sure to leave audiences mesmerized!
Performance by “Showtime Steve” Stephen Corning:
Dubbed as “The Human Variety Show,” Showtime Steve is a one-of-a-kind variety performer, harnessing his signature off-the-cuff comedy and show-stopping stunts to create a high-energy show unlike any other! Audiences across the US and beyond have seen Steve juggle everything from shoes and car-keys, to machetes and balloons, as well as re-create a 100-year-old Houdini rope escape, contort his entire body through a folding chair, manipulate LED light props in the dark, and balance a ladder (and other dangerous items) on his chin.
All this mixed with a healthy dose of physical comedy and audience participation makes this show an unforgettable experience for the whole family!
Pony X-Press Petting Zoo
10:00 AM -12:30 PM
Pony X-Press is a family-owned and operated traveling petting zoo based in Maine and has been delivering education, live animal shows, and amazing memories since 1991. So come hang out with some great goats, (and their babies!) a mini horse, a mini donkey, and some friendly alpacas! These lovely animals love to be fed, but be sure to come by early to give them their grains before they get too full!
River Rescue Demonstration
Join us at the river for an opportunity to see how the Westbrook Fire Department trains for river rescues!

Enjoy all the fun of the Classic Games, but bigger! Featuring Jumbo Ring Toss, Jumbo Jenga and Jumbo 4-To-Score, and Classic Corn Hole.
The New England Arab American Organization RV
The New England Arab American Organization will offer arts and crafts, holiday treats, music, and more out of their renovated RV! Throughout the pandemic, NEAAO has served the community by transforming the RV into a mobile testing site and is now acting as a mobile vaccine clinic. We are excited to host NEAAO at WinterFest and see the RV in action!
