“Hey, Ma, let’s go to the Moxie Festival!”
Yes, friends, in just two weeks it’ll be the Thirtieth Annual Moxie Festival in Lisbon Falls, Maine. They’ve got Moxie Ice Cream!
Lisbon Falls isn’t too far from me. Twenty thousand people blow into town to watch the Moxie Parade, join the Moxie Chugging Contest, run the Moxie Race, and visit the Moxie Museum.
Lisbon Falls is on Rt. 196, midway between Brunswick and Lewiston, just north of Portland. It’s a quick trip up I-95 from Boston. The Moxie Festival is July 13-15 this year.
Moxie. It’s good for you.
On your way through Portland be sure to stop off at Duckfat for some french fries. Those are Maine potatoes, fried in duck fat, and served with truffle ketchup.
