Thursdays on Sweden a big success in Caribou

CARIBOU, Maine — The City of Caribou held its first “Thursdays on Sweden” event Thursday night, June 27th on Sweden Street and the Downtown Mall in Caribou. Thursday’s event, the first in a series of seven this summer and fall, featured a live band, food, art and craft vendors, a beer garden & street café, and activities for kids.

With an estimated attendance of over 700, the event was a resounding success. Given the cold temperatures, the attendance was very encouraging and the next scheduled event on July 11th is expected to bring an even larger crowd. “Thursdays on Sweden” is a combined effort of the City of Caribou, the Caribou Area Chamber of Commerce, and Caribou’s newly formed community revitalization committee.

Pictures of the event are available upon request or may be gleaned from the Caribou Area Chamber of Commerce’s Facebook page at
