Rangeley Craft Fair:

It’s that time again! The birds are chirping, the grass is green, and summer just getting started. With summer comes all kinds of fairs and festivals. We know that this is a while away but it doesn’t hurt to talk about it now! On Saturday, July 3rd, the Rangeley Town Park will come to life with lots of vendors, food, and entertainment for all ages, all provided by our area nonprofit organizations. This will be a true family day packed with fun. Festivities begin at 10:00 AM with the Children’s Parade at 10:00 AM and the Duck Race on Haley Pond at 10:30 AM, and go out with a bang as the fireworks get underway at dusk. Visitors will enjoy food, live entertainment, games, demonstrations, and more – including a dog parade – all in the splendor of the picturesque lakeside park. The fireworks are one for the books!

Along with the many other vendors, Jamie from Simply Scrunch Co. will be there doing what she does best! With her company selling all homemade soy candles, scrunchies, cheese boards, and greeting cards. If you happened to find yourself in the Saddleback retail shop this year you probably noticed a great smelling candle burning. Those were all from Simply Scrunch Co. Currently, she is trying to reach 500 followers on Instagram and will do a giveaway when she hits her goal. At the time of writing this, Simply Scrunch Co. has 462 followers! Check out her website and Instagram below!

Did someone say Merrill Hill? Yes, you read that right! Sunday River’s newest project, Merrill Hill, is taking place with crews working on the liftline and a few trails right now!
