Third Belfast street party features events for all ages

BELFAST, Maine — The third annual Belfast Street party, a production of Our Town Belfast, starts at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 9, and ends at 11 p.m. Children may arrive early to play and eat and, adults may stay late and dance the night away. The party was originally scheduled for Monday, Aug. 8, but was postponed due to rain.

High Street between the town center traffic signal and MacLeod’s furniture store will be closed to parked cars and traffic and open to an array of food, attractions, games and music.

New this year will be bungee jumping and a mechanical bull among other attractions, such as a dunk tank, giant inflatable rat race maze and climbing wall. There will be two free bounce houses for children.

Free music and entertainment will be offered. Scheduled bands are Don Nickerson and Country Mist, Lincolnville Band and Sistalicious. The bands will perform at the Street Party Stage in front of the Colonial Theater. Roving musicians and performers are expected to attend.

The Courtney Porter dance ensemble, which did a Michael Jackson tribute the first year and “Rocky Horror Picture Show” last year, will do a tribute to “Hair.” DJ Matt Bixby will fill in while the bands are setting up.

There will be hula hoopers and extra hoops to try. There also will be games, balloon animals, jugglers, church groups, Mexican food, ice cream, whoopie pies, free popcorn and street singers.
