Folk Fest Comes to A Close 

The three day event brought acts from all over the world, and organizers say attendance was strong, despite a bout of nasty weather.

Bangor police officials say the festival was problem-free this year.

During each four-hour period, there were at least 15 officers on site, looking out for problems. No incidents transpired, however, and authorities say most officers spent their time getting cars in and out of the waterfront area.

The folks from the folk festival bucket brigade were busy all weekend. Saying they had their most successful weekend yet.

Each year, scores of volunteers work their way through the crowds, collecting donations.

All those coins and bills add up, money that helps keep the festival free each year.

The bucket brigade says they broke last year’s fundraising record of 66-thousand dollars.
