LISBON FALLS, Maine — Organizers of Maine’s annual Moxie Festival are seeking ideas for a theme for next year’s event.

The Moxie Festival Committee says it’s taking entries for its theme contest until Jan. 31. The 30th annual festival is scheduled for next July 13-15.

The festival is held each year to pay homage to the quirky bittersweet soda that was concocted by a Mainer in the 1870s. Moxie is Maine’s official soft drink.

The winner of the theme contest will win a basket filled with Moxie items and be invited to join festival VIPs during the festival parade.
