BATH

The city of Bath will celebrate the annual Autumnfest this Columbus Day weekend, as well as its 18th Annual Citizen Involvement Day.

The festivities will take place on Saturday in downtown Bath with businesses offering sales and rewards and live music and activities in Waterfront Park. During Wednesday’s city council meeting, City Manager William Giroux stated that more than 40 nonprofits had agreed to take part in Autumnfest so far.

One of Autumnfest’s highlights will be the Scarecrow Decorating Contest. Any local business or nonprofit may participate in the contest by placing a scarecrow outside, while second- and third-story organizations can enter another contest by festively decorating their windows. Winners will be announced at 2:30 p.m. There will also be a scarecrow making workshop sponsored by the Parks and Recreation Department at the Customs House from 9:30-11:30 a.m.

More active attendees can participate in The Bath Rotary 4-Way 5K Run/Walk. The race will be professionally timed, and the fastest male and female will win $100 prize. Registration will be held from 7-8:30 a.m. at the Knights of Columbus building, where the race will both begin and end.

Bath Citizen Involvement Day will run throughout the morning, and an award will be handed out for Citizen of the Year. Bath Citizen Involvement Day, which technically ends at 12:30, will overlap with the North Front Street Block Party which will run from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

CHANS Home Health Care will also be providing free Flu vaccinations for children 6 and up.
