Fun in Freeport this weekend!

This weekend, April 17-19, is alive with outdoor activities!

The LL Bean Spring Sports event takes place this weekend. Take a walk to the store from here and get excited about the outdoors! And don't miss the newly opened 1912 Cafe located in LL Bean on the main floor near the big 'River' aquarium.

The Wild Bird Supply store will be having free coffee and popcorn as well as their free, guided bird walk. On Saturday, meet at the store at 8 AM; on Sunday meet atop Bradbury Mountain. (In the event of rain, the Sunday bird walk will not be held, but a presentation on hawk identification will be show at the store.) FMI- check their website

The Historic Freeport B&B's will be hosting an open house on Friday, April 17 from 2-4 PM. Stop in here to get your map and have a look around. This was the former home of Donald MacMillan, Arctic explorer. We have some of his books and his wife Marian's books as well as articles he wrote for National Geographic back in 1925. And that's just the tip of the iceberg! For more information and to see artifacts of his and Adm Peary's expeditions, check out the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum at Bowdoin College.

The Bath Antiques Show is on Sunday from 10 AM- 3 PM in the Bath Middle School.

Hope to see you here!

And plan ahead for the grand opening of the Freeport Village Station...May 16. South Freeport resident, Joan Benoit Samuelson will be the guest of honor at the opening of the Nike Outlet.
