Fall Fun Day

The Bridgton Farmers Market has planned a Fall Fun Day for kids who visit the market during regular hours from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 16. In addition to yummy food, there will be Halloween mask-making and a raffle for special prizes. The market is located outside on the green on Depot Street (behind Renys). Note that the market will move indoors to its winter quarters beginning Nov. 13.

Music on Main

The first Music on Main concert was very well attended, and the second scheduled event was expected to be the same, but the weather played havoc with the “best laid plans.” The second concert had to be canceled based on weather forecasts and the time required to notify vendors and performers. But the shows will go on, with two events planned for October, one on Saturday the 16th and another on Saturday the 23rd. The organizers are hoping to feature some of the same bands and vendors that were scheduled for the show that was canceled as well as others. The free concerts take place from 6-9 p.m. at the vacant lot at 144 Main St. Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs but asked to leave their coolers at home; food and beverages from local producers will be for sale.
