BUCKFIELD – The town of Buckfield will celebrate Labor Day with a weekend of festivities beginning with a variety show featuring Mike Miclon and Friends on Friday, Sept. 2.

The show will be held at the football field behind the Municipal Center, which has ample parking due to the recent beautification project at the center.

There is no charge for the show, but viewers are asked to bring a lawn chair.

Events continue on Saturday with a dance from 8 p.m. until midnight with music by the Rockin’ Roadrunners. People may bring alcoholic beverages, and no one under 21 will be admitted.

There will be a charge of $5 per person for the event, which will be held at the basketball court at the newly completed Buckfield Memorial Recreational Park on Cross Road.

On Sunday, the Buckfield Firemen’s Association will hold a firemen’s muster at 10 a.m. at the football field.

This will be followed by a pig roast, which will cost $5 per person, with proceeds going to the Firemen’s Association.

The big Labor Day parade will start at 10 a.m. from the Buckfield High School.

Kids’ games, food, crafts and antique cars will be among the displays and offerings in the ball field after the parade.

The annual duck race on the Nezinscot River starts at 1 p.m. with prizes of $100, $50 and $25. Ducks are $5 each.

The event is being sponsored by Northeast Bank, and any questions may be addressed to Rossie Kyllonen of the Buckfield Labor Day Committee at 336-2081.
