The Kennebunk Festival Committee announces the Second Annual Harvest Fest on Main Street to promote local business and provide downtown entertainment for families in Kennebunk. The event will be held on Saturday, October 22, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. This year’s Festival will also include a celebration of the completion of the Mousam River Bridge as well as an Apples and Arts Day, sponsored by the Kennebunk Farmer’s Market.
