LISBON FALLS — Organizers of Maine’s annual Moxie Festival are seeking suggestions for a theme for next year’s event.

The Moxie Festival Committee says it is taking entries for its theme contest until Jan. 31.

The festival in Lisbon Falls draws tens of thousands of visitors each year to pay homage to the quirky bittersweet soda that was concocted by a Mainer in the 1870s. Moxie is Maine’s official soft drink.

The winner of the theme contest will win a basket filled with Moxie items and be invited to join festival VIPs during the festival parade.

The 28th annual Moxie Festival is scheduled for next July 8-11.
