07/03/2019: Maine lore has it that if you don’t lock your car during the months of July and August you’re apt to come out and find it full of zucchini! Zucchini plants almost always produce more zucchinis than anyone knows what to do with. This year the Merrymeeting Arts Center is offering a creative solution to the question of what to do with all those zucchinis, especially the huge, overgrown ones: Turn them into racing zucchinis and enter them in the 1st Annual Zucchini Races at Celebrate Bowdoinham at 11am, on September 14th!
