Spring has sprung, so grab a broom, there's lots of work to be done!

Warmer and longer days means only one thing, it's Springtime and that is where the Downtown Bangor Beautification Committee comes in. Sunday, April 25th from 9:30am-1pm, it's the annual Downtown Bangor Spring Cleanup.

Now that we are seeing less snow and more sun, it's time to spruce up the streets, sidewalks, and parks for another great summer. It's all taking place at Norumbega Parkway, which is located on Central Street.

The task of this event is to take down all of the winter lights, pick up trash, paint benches, and to remove any of that pesky graffiti. This accomplishes two tasks, it makes Downtown Bangor look beautiful for the upcoming gorgeous weather that lies ahead of us, and it clears the way for the Adopt-A-Garden Big Dig Week, which happens May 8th - 16th!

What do you need to do to get involved? So glad you asked! You can help out by bringing ladders, rakes, gardening gloves, and anything else that would help.

If your company or organization would like to sponsor or volunteer at this event, all you have to do is send an e-mail to downtownbangor maine@gmail.com

People who would like to volunteer can meet up in Norumbega Parkway (On the Central Street side) starting at 9:30am, on Sunday, April 25th to get things started.

This is a perfect way to get outdoors, get some fresh air, and best of all, get Downtown Bangor ready for what is hopefully going to be a busy post covid, spring and summer season here in the Queen City!
