Fun at the 6th Annual Green Neighbor Family Fest!

The 6th Annual Urban Runoff and Green Neighbor Family Fest were a blast! Thank you to everyone who came out to join us (despite the weather) to help raise awareness of water pollution and to support the Cumberland County Soil & Water Conservation District's CONNECT clean water education program.  We couldn’t be more excited to see the race and festival grow year after year and are already looking forward to 2018.

We may have had to move this year's festival inside, but it didn’t stop the fun! The Maine Marimba Ensemble had us grooving, Party Palooga joined us for face painting and Cannoli Joe’s food truck was serving up delicious cannolis.  We also had over 25 organizations join us to provide awesome hands on activities for youth, while talking about what we can all do to be greener neighbors!
