This year's 2012 Grand Marshals

Maine Discovery Museum celebrates their first decade

Independence Day is a day of remembering our heritage, and part of the Greater Bangor Region's history has much to do with the businesses that helped sustain it.

The 4th of July Corporation, organizers of the annual parade and fireworks celebration, selected the Maine Discovery Museum as this year's grand marshal in recognition of the museum's successful decade since first opening to the public.

For families living in the greater Bangor area, MDM has become one of the major activity centers for children since it began operating in February 2001. For the city itself, the museum has become one of Bangor's major tourist destinations that attracts an average of 60,000 visitors a year.
