Sweet sounds at Sugarloaf

Sugarloaf Reggae Festival marks 25th year

CARRABASSETT VALLEY It might seem a bit counterintuitive to think of a ski mountain when it comes time to consider the dawning of spring. While Sugarloaf is one of the premier skiing destinations on the East Coast, come April, we're more inclined to think about melting snow rather than snowpack.

BANGOR - It's hard to believe the little man in the striped shirt, bobble hat and glasses featured in a series of children's books known as "Where's Waldo?" is 25 years old. He's often hidden among numerous individuals in various double page spreads, making it a challenge and an adventure for readers to locate him among all the colorful artwork. To mark this special occasion, the Briar Patch in Bangor and other downtown businesses have small cardboard figures of the famous fictional character hidden in their stores for area readers to discover.

"Twenty businesses are participating in this," said Cathy Anderson, owner of the Briar Patch which coincidentally is also celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. "Kids come running in saying, 'Where's Waldo?'"
