When you live in a small Maine town, you know most of the local community members.
This morning on the way to a Maine real estate closing, the hustle bustle of the downtown around Market Square and Main Street is because of Midnight Madness tonight. The area businesses put on their best sales, to invite and entice the shoppers to wander to the downtown. To see what they are missing, to socialize, to hear outdoor music, get some locally prepared food delicacies. Like a dough boy from Sadie's Bakery tonight.
Laurel Veysey is sweeping off the Houlton Lodge of Elks front steps this morning. Vendors are one by one setting up their tents, tables to peddle their wares. It is like old home week, lots of reunions for schools, and plenty of wedding planning is happening at the same time the Fourth of July festivities kick into high gear. Nothing to do this next few days and need a road trip? Head to Houlton Maine. See a long list of fun recreational options to make the trip memorable, worthwhile.
The Maine weather is cooperating and the sun is out which has been a little MIA this summer so far.
You can hear, see, experience it with a video on a past midnight madness, other 4th of July state fair happenings.
