    PORTSMOUTH—It’s winter fun and evening entertainment in an indoor/outdoor affair presented Thursday, Jan. 13 for the Chamber members and community members! With fire pits, and comfort food, ice skating AND ice dancing and live music – you’ll find something to delight in (and most likely more!)  “The Puddle Dock Prelude is a warmup to Wintertide—a festival highlighting the fun activities to be found in the winter in Portsmouth,” said Chief Collaborator and President of the Chamber, Ben VanCamp.  

    And you won’t want to miss out on the ice dancing treat that starts promptly at 6:30 p.m. Ice Dance International will light up the night with a short show of numbers from IDI company members including 2X United States Champion Alissa Czisny. The joyful performance will inspire you to get and out and skate! The Ice Dance International company will be in residence at Strawbery Banke Museum from Jan. 9-Feb. 27 sharing the joy of skating with the community in pop ups, special events like Seacoast Skating with the Stars, teaching classes for the public; and performing throughout New England, including a special series of events with L.L. Bean called Winter Across Maine.  

    Inside at Puddle Dock Prelude, when you’re ready to take a break from skating or kibbitzing about the fire pits, relax to the live folk music of Green Heron, chat with Prelude goers and  take a chance at the Beer Pull (with a special Golden Ticket, worth your weight in beer!) 

    Speaking of the Beer Pull: Thanks (with more to come) to Stoneface, SoMe, Loaded Question, Tributary, Liars Bench, Earth Eagle Brewings, Cisco, Prescott Park Arts Festival : Brewfest Exeter Area Chamber of Commerce & Exeter Parks and Recreation’s Powderkeg Beer & Chilli Festival.
