Another year is in the books, so let's take a look back at 2021, right here in the Bangor area!

After a brutal 2020, things have gradually got back to some sort of normalcy during the last 12 months. People got vaccinated, and we slowly returned to all the things we love doing. Restaurants re-opened, concerts and sporting events came roaring back, so it wasn't all bad this time around. COVID is still very much present in our daily lives, but getting back to the daily grind (whatever that is now) was a welcome relief.

Lots of things happened in the Bangor area, and of course in this day and age, they are captured on all forms of social media. With that in mind, YouTube is a great way to take a look at what we were doing in 2021. Here are some of the most viewed videos.
