walking paths and easy access to downtown Bangor, the unique spirit of the Greater Bangor Region is
evident in its charming shops, delicious dining and world‐class performing arts.  The opportunity to
indulge in culture and nature will beckon you at every turn and it’s all within a very short drive.
The Great Maine BBQ Challenge will be a three‐day, pet friendly event.  Friday the excitement begins
with set up and preparation. Saturday will hold a NEBS competition followed by a KCBS
