Wormfest wows

Mon, 06/10/2024 - 8:45am

Railroad Avenue next to the Sheepscot River was filled with balloon worms, candy worms, bands, Wiscasset’s worm-digging history, free hot dogs, lemonade and more for kids, fundraising for a scholarship, and kids getting into pink sacks to play the worm for their family members to carry in a relay Saturday, June 8 at Wiscasset’s first Wormfest. 

Team members on the Ring Worms, Gummy Worms and Skibbidi Worms also donned digger’s boots known as waders and helped teammates out of them. Wormfest drew smiles, laughter, applause and, depending on the minute, sun or showers. 

Organizers were thankful for the turnout and the event’s supporters, and encouraged about the prospects for another Wormfest.
