GRAY — The Girl Scouts of Maine will hold a Girl Scout Festival at the Maine Wildlife Park on Saturday, Oct. 25, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The festival is open to girls in grades kindergarten through fifth grade (who are not currently in a Girl Scout troop) and their families. This event will showcase some of the many great activities Girl Scouts of Maine offers and provide a fun Saturday afternoon outing.
Participants will discover the park and visit with the wildlife, while checking out a variety of activities. They’ll learn how to make SWAPS, join in a sing-a-long, create a fun fall craft, explore animal habitats and homes and make a bird feeder to take home.
Festival tickets can be purchased at the Maine Wildlife Park. Festival guests should mention Girl Scouts and they will receive the discounted rate of $3.50 a person. Children under 3 years of age enter for free. Plus, the first 50 girls in grades K-5 will receive a free pass to come back to the park.
In the case of extreme weather, the festival will be moved to Sunday, Oct. 26; a message will be posted on the park’s voicemail at 207-657-4977.
