September is a busy month for Young & Free Maine. Along with the usual blogs, videos and Fresh Baked Fridays, I’ll be at events all over the state in the next few weeks talking to you and giving away free swag. Here’s a quick list of where I’ll be and what you can expect from Young & Free Maine during the first month of the school year.
I’ll be at the 12th Annual Husky Fest on Thursday at the University of Southern Maine Portland campus. This celebration is part of welcome week and is USM’s largest event. Students are invited to a free barbecue and a variety of local vendor tables on campus. I’ll be handing out some Young & Free Maine swag and talking to you about back to school. Find me and get free stuff, it doesn’t get much better than that!
Hill ‘n the Ville
The Hill ‘n the Ville music festival kicks off Friday afternoon with a variety of musical acts performing in downtown Waterville. I’ll be there to check out the scene and meet Young & Free Maine music fans. The event will also feature food vendors and fun activities for all ages. For more information on the festival visit the Waterville Main Street website.
Old Town Riverfest
Looking ahead to the end of the September (it’ll be here before you know it!) The Green Machine and I will be in the Old Town Riverfest parade on September 28th. This event is right in my backyard so I can’t wait to check out all of the festivities. The full schedule of events is still being developed, but you can get up to date information at the Old Town Riverfest Facebook page.
September On the Road
Young & Free On the Road continues this month with another incredible spotlight. The video officially premieres tomorrow, but you can get a sneak peak at the On the Road section of the website. I loved meeting with the September interviewee. She truly captures the spirit of being Young and Free in Maine, no matter what obstacles arise.
