The local Houlton Maine motels are busy, area restaurants and diners will be hopping. And over 35 Maine music programs will compete in the Maine State Vocal Jazz Music Festival in Houlton this weekend which requires lots of local volunteer support to coordinate. The local facility in Houlton is undergoing a major expansion with the new Houlton Community Arts Center building project. Ground breaking for the project starts May 1st, 2009.
Meanwhile, McGill’s Community Band has been practicing through out March and the area looks forward to outdoor concerts at the Houlton Amphitheatre behind Cary Library thru out the summer and fall.
