Maine Discovery Museum Celebrates Fall 

It’s not just the weather that has the Fall feeling.

Kids in Bangor got to make some autumn crafts on Sunday.

It’s the Maine Discovery Museum’s annual Harvest Celebration.

Children learned all about vegetables they might see in the fall.

They also made some fig people, acorn wind chimes, and cornucopia.

One organizer said the event teachers kids about the season and gets them involved in the community.

Maine Discovery Museum Visitor Services Director, Kim Stewart said, “The harvest festival is all about sharing what you what with the community and that’s something that’s very important to us and we think its great for children to learn about that. It also ties into thanksgiving, which is coming right up now here.”

The museum also wants the community to know about an upcoming event.

On Sunday, September 29th the center will hold their 3rd “My Day to Play.”

It’s held from 4:30 to 6 pm.

The even is for families with autistic children, allowing the kids to play in a safe environment.
