Then at 3pm the celebration will continue at Mailly Waterfront Park for a barbeque featuring fresh foods from local farms and live music by the Intergalactic Yurt Band.  The Intergalactic Yurt Band is a collective of artists, misfits, craftsmen and dreamers drawn together by love of music from the deep well of Americana, certified organic music. The Barbeque will be catered by The Texas Barbeque Company with members of Village Lodge # 26 AF & AM the local Masonic Lodge in Bowdoinham.  Bowdoinham Historical Society will also be joining the barbeque with their famous strawberry shortcake.  Thank you to our Barbeque Sponsors: Maine Farmland Trust and Merrymeeting Trailblazers!
