Some fun Mondays in 2011:

February 14… July 4… August 8… October 31…

No? Confused about the third option? The third annual Belfast Street Party, that willfully non-S-day, all-ages, summer throwdown, rolls into town this year on Monday, Aug. 8, and organizers are gearing up for bigger crowds than ever.

A section of High Street, between Main and Bridge streets, will be closed for the festivities, which start at 4 p.m. and continue until 11 p.m. Admission is free.

Favorite carnival-style attractions from past years like the climbing wall, giant inflatable Rat Race maze, dunk tank and bounce houses for children return, with the addition of bungee jumping, and a mechanical bull.

“It’s fluid, we’re adding stuff all the time,” said Dorothy Havey of Our Town Belfast. “The hula hoop kids are coming, the tarot card reader just signed up.”

The food offerings have been expanded this year, “to mix it up a little bit,” Havey said, and unlike past years, there will be a picnic area with seating. Funnel cakes from Weaver’s Bakery, crab rolls from The Lion’s Club, free hot dogs from Old Stuff, snow cones from Project Graduation, teriyaki drumsticks and lemonade from St. Margaret’s Church, tacos from Marko Loco, and coffee from Coffeeman is a partial list of the food that will be available.

Music is on tap for the whole party, from busking street musicians and a DJ to three bands on the main stage: the family friendly Lincolnville Town Band, Don Nickerson & Country Mist, and a late-night performance by three-time Street Party closer Sistalicious.

The Belfast Street Party is a production of Our Town Belfast. If it proves necessary, a rain date has been set for Wednesday, Aug. 10.

Updates will be posted on the Belfast Street Party and Our Town Belfast pages on Facebook. For more information or to volunteer, call 338-1975, or email
