Kids on Main

Community Happenings

Main Street Bucksport invites children and their families and caretakers to Kids on Main, a Saturday morning event in downtown Bucksport.

Volunteers will read children's books for about an hour and every child age 9 and younger in attendance will receive a reusable, high-quality cloth face mask, a free book, courtesy of Literacy Volunteers of Maine, and a free ice cream sandwich, courtesy of Bucksport Hannaford. Kids on Main will take place behind the Lighthouse Arts and Education Center Saturday, Aug. 1, and again on Saturday, Aug. 8, at 11 a.m.

The event will use current best practices of mask-wearing and social distancing and the volunteer reader will use a microphone and be well distanced from attendees. Areas for families to sit will be clearly marked and will be more than 6 feet from other families. Kids on Main is limited to 50 people.

Afterward, families are invited to enjoy the Buck Memorial Library's Storywalk on the waterfront walkway.
