Wet Weather Dampens American Folk Festival Attendance 

Catherine Pegram

As expected, Tropical Depression Danny put a damper on attendance over the weekend at the American Folk Festival in Bangor Organizers tell us they had 116-thousand visits during the three-day event. That’s less than last year’s 160-thousand visits.Saturday’s heavy rain was the worst weather the festival has experienced during its eight years on the Bangor Waterfront. Donations were still strong, despite the wash out. Organizers say the bucket brigade took in over $100,000.They’re hopeful that will be enough to keep the event free next year.
