Folk Festival Update 

Organizers of the American Folk Festival will not be releasing a projected attendance figure for last weekend’s event.Festival Director Heather McCarthy says it was an enthusiastic and healthy crowd on the Bangor waterfront this year, and certainly more than last year, which was hampered by rain.McCarthy says the Bucket Brigade brought in a record $170,000 in donations.That still leaves the festival about $50,000 short of their fundraising goal for this year.
