Owner of “Hero’s” Sports Grill, Quinn Paradis, said, “We had a small meeting about it and it’s something that’s been done for the last 3 or 4 years, It’s good for the community to give back.”Treasurer of the Curren Homestead Living History Museum and Farm, Irv Marsters, said, “This is probably the nicest cultural event that one community like Bangor can have. Bangor deserves this. It’s a wonderful opportunity for all of us to get involved.” Customers who still want to shop in the plaza will be able to park for free. Any one who parks there will also receive a coupon packet for the businesses in the plaza.
