ELLSWORTH The Grand takes a look at the exciting sport of sled dog racing during its 'Experience the Iditarod' screening event on April 21th at 7 p.m. Ticket prices are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors, $8 for Grand members and $5 for youth (12 and under).

An evening at The Grand celebrating the Iditarod can't be too ruff, can it? Especially when it is hosted by 'Timber' Tina Scheer from 'The Great Maine Lumberjack Show' and sponsored by the Great Maine Lumberjack Show and Cadillac Mountain Sports. Tina is an Iditarod volunteer veteran and will bring her boundless energy to the Grand to both introduce this brand-new documentary about the inspiring comeback of champion sled dog racer Lance Mackey, as well as present slides and take questions from the audience about her own amazing experiences after the show. In addition, the audience will be able to see a real-live 'musher' and sled dog team in the lobby of The Grand before the event.

As if that weren't exciting enough, The Grand is offering a special 'Iditarod Raffle' where for the price of a $5 raffle ticket (or five for $20), someone can win two round-trip Bar Harbor to Boston airfare vouchers donated by PenAir - 'The Spirit of Alaska' and sponsor of the Iditarod race. Tickets for both the event and the raffle can purchased ahead of time at the box office; they are also available by phone and online.

So bring a friend and share the experience the wonderful world of sled dog racing as The Grand invites audiences to 'Experience the Iditarod.'
