BIDDEFORD, Maine — Weekend festivals featuring arts, culture and a lot of fun are on tap in Biddeford and Saco.

The revamped La Kermesse Franco-Americaine Festival in Biddeford, which opened Friday and runs through Sunday, is in its 29th year. The longest-running event of the weekend is the Saco Sidewalk Arts Festival, which is being held for the 41st year on Saturday.

The Journal Tribune says a new event is the Biddeford ArtWalk’s BiddeFair Arts & Crafts Festival on Saturday.

A trolley that will travel through Biddeford and Saco’s downtowns on Saturday — with stops near each event — will make it easy for everyone to see sights of the festivals.

Fireworks will be held Saturday night.
