Two Ways to Start Enjoying the 2012 American Folk Festival in Bangor 

One of the biggest events of the summer in Bangor is the American Folk Festival.Preparation has already begun down on the waterfront, and if you’re looking to get into the festival spirit a little early, there are a couple of ways.Tim Horton’s is offering a sweet treat in honor of the festival.”We’re going to be at the folk festival this weekend and we thought that a great way to introduce our customers to the festival is to sell a special donut so we developed a special doughnut, the American Folk Festival Doughnut, which we are selling for a dollar with all of the proceeds going to help bring the festival back to Bangor. Having the festival here in Bangor is a great, great event for the city, it’s great for all the businesses, brings in lots of talent from all over the country and all over the world and we want to keep it coming back to Bangor,” said Marc Nickair, owner of the Brewer Tim Horton’s.Another way to get ready for the festivities, is by downloading the festival’s free app. “This is our second year doing a mobile app for the folk festival. We still have the schedule and performer info. We have current information about what’s on each stage at a certain time. And we also have the ability to submit photos from the festival grounds on to the festival’s Facebook page. So, if you are down here and you see something that really screams American Folk Festival for you, you can take a photo and submit that and we’ll use the best ones on the festival’s Facebook page,” said Justin Russell, a developer for Sephone Interactive Media.Whether you decide to indulge with a yummy snack or download the free festival app or take advantage of both, the countdown is on for the start of the 2012 American Folk Festival on the Bangor Waterfront.To download the American Folk Festival App for your smartphone, visit this link.
