UMFK partners with Fort Kent Chamber for a weekend of festivities

The University of Maine at Fort Kent and the Greater Fort Kent Area Chamber of Commerce will combine forces for their respective Homecoming and Scarecrow Festival celebrations for the weekend of September 15th, 16th, and 17th in Fort Kent.

The three days will feature many events, including soccer and volleyball games, pep rally, BBQ, and the popular Homecoming/Scarecrow Festival parade.

In preparation of the upcoming festivities, area businesses are encouraged to decorate their business with a “Scarecrow go to the Movies” theme in the front of their building. A coloring contest has been planned for children ages seven and younger.

The Chamber encourages businesses to hold side-walk sales and vendors throughout downtown. All vendors need to contact the landowners or business owners before setting up.
