&
Saturday Dec. 3 from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
@ the Lincoln Street Center Rockland's first indie craft show...
just in time for the holiday.

This will not be the church craft fair that you went to last year...trying to decide between the wooden geese, doilies and the rayon yarn vests in red and green.

This will be the juried creatives fair of Rockland, where artists, artisans, craftspeople, and foodies can sell their wares to folks who are looking for the perfect gift for friends, family and coworkers.  Maybe for themselves, too! 

We will be located in the gym of the Lincoln Street Center, 24 Lincoln Street, with over 50 booths!

Currently, Maine Forest Service and state park rangers are observing low leaf color, or 10 to 30 percent toward peak, along with very low leaf drop in all of Aroostook County and northern portions of Piscataquis and Somerset counties.

Rangers believe that some sections of Aroostook County will see moderate color, or 30 to 50 percent toward peak, by this weekend. Foliage color and leaf drop in the remainder of the state is very low, or less than 10 percent, according to the report.

"Fall colors are starting to show along mountain ridges in Aroostook County," said Scott Thompson, park ranger at Aroostook State Park near Presque Isle.
