If anyone ever said that Mainers don’t know how to put on a heavy duty weekend party, they have obviously never attended Harry’s Hoedown in the town of Starks. Nor have they even thought about the Whatever Family Festival in Gardiner. But wait there’s more ! A whole lot more ! Seriously now. These local get-togethers are a blast and, as you can imagine, not all that different from any other small-town celebrations throughout the country. The reason for celebration might not be the same, but the spirit and camaraderie of the attendees is no less festive than any other gatherings of the kind. the Whatever Festival is the closest one to us, as Gardiner is a “suburb” of Augusta. So all you Mainers pack up the youguns and head on out to Starks,  Old Town, Deer Isle or Whatever. It’s a great New England Weekend to celebrate!
