Maine Franco-Americaine Festival gets council OK

The Associated Press

BIDDEFORD, Maine — The Biddeford City Council is giving the 29th La Kermesse Franco-Americaine Festival a go-ahead for June.

The Journal Tribune of Biddeford said the council gave its approval, based on several conditions, to hold the event at Mechanics Park on June 24-26.

Approval came despite some unresolved issues with the city.

For the past two years, the event has been plagued with problems, including bad weather, low attendance, lack of funds to pay off vendors and legal problems.
