Center Theatre to host block party May 29

DOVER-FOXCROFT – The Center Theatre has announced that it is hosting its second annual New Neighbors Block Party from 5-8 p.m. on Sunday, May 29 in the parking lot beside the Center Theatre at 20 East Main Street.

The Block Party started in 2021 as a way to bring new members of the community together, and Patrick Myers, the executive director of the Center Theatre, said that they’re looking forward to more of the same this year. “Last year it was a very hot afternoon, so we’ve moved it later in the day to give a little time to cool off. It will be a great chance for new residents to get together with their neighbors and have a fun time. There will also be a chance to meet and learn about some of the local organizations that are taking part in the event including the Dover-Foxcroft Kiwanis Club, Thompson Free Library, Piscataquis County Ice Arena, Piscataquis Chamber of Commerce, and more.”
