At Pownalborough Courthouse Sunday, July 11, Dresden had its annual Summerfest for the first time since 2019.
“We are doing some new things,” said celebration coordinator Robin Grant. New this year were a caricaturist doing portraits, new vendors and an expanded presence by Colonial Maine Living History Association, said Grant.
Reenactors demonstrated colonial dress, period games and weaponry and performed an early version of a tug-of-war. “We added a snow cone machine,” said Grant. Several teams came forward for a tug-of-war and egg toss. Dresden Fire Department supplied hot dogs, hamburgers and soft drinks.
Ken Morse and friends supplied folk music.
