Free Family Fun at RiverJam Fest this Weekend in Saco/Biddeford
Who doesn't like local free family fun?
I moved to Biddeford June 1st and I have been exploring the area since. I am right in the middle of downtown and a walk away from downtown Saco. This area is not what you remember. It is 'up and coming' as the hipsters say with new restaurants, apartments and breweries moving in. I don't need to go to Portland anymore to go out on the town. That saves me lots of gas and tolls too! Now I have found a fun event happening this weekend all outside! It is for adults and kids too. But, the best part is that it's free. I got you at free didn't I? LOL
RiverJam Fest is happening this weekend September 14-15 and all the events are happening all along the Biddeford and Saco town lines. According to their website riverjamfest.com, here are the locations for events:
