LISBON — In the spirit of Halloween, Lisbon’s Moxie Festival Committee announced recently that the 2016 Moxie Festival theme will be “Moxie: It’s Out of This World,” submitted by Michelle King of Lisbon.

The contest to come up with the winning theme drew entrants from across the country.

King, a self-described stay-at-home mom who’s also an active volunteer at her children’s schools, was thrilled when she was notified as this year’s winner.

“I’m honored to be chosen as this year’s Moxie Festival theme winner. My family and I are excited to be part of the Moxie Festival, in such a great community,” said King.

King and her family live in the house that her husband’s grandparents were raised in. “You can say that our children are the fourth generation, living in Lisbon,” she added.

The three-day Moxie Festival takes place the second weekend of July in Lisbon. The 35th consecutive celebration of all things Moxie will take place July 8 to 10, 2016.
