Those of you coming to Fort Kent for Small Business Saturday from south of here, on your way to or on your way from here using the Caribou Road (Route 161), consider turning off on Route 162/Route 1 and taking Sinclair/St. Agatha/Frenchville to get to Fort Kent.

On your way, stop by one of our fine dining establishments like Long Lake Sporting Club in Sinclair or Lakeview Restaurant in St. Agatha. The scening views of Long Lake and the fine dining you will experience will surely be worth the detour.

The Greater Fort Kent Area Chamber of Commerce, with the help of WFKTV4, invited its members to participate in a beach ball toss video - a little fun in the summer sun, cutting loose in Maine's Upper St. John Valley.

The Ploye Festival for 2020 has been cancelled, but the Muskie Derby is still happening. Please visit their page for information about the derby. Also, there may be some local events still happening that weekend, and we will make sure to post them here.

What fun! Thank you all who participated in our game for this weekend. We hope you've enjoyed our game.

It is amazing how many businesses there are in the Greater Fort Kent area - and some quite unique ones at that! And we weren't even able to hit them all (can you imagine - we did this for four days - we would be doing this for two weeks at least if we hit them all!) How lucky we are to have such hard-working dedicated people to work in our communities and businesses and patrons to support these businesses and keep our local economy in check.

We look forward to having our businesses parade you next year for Scarecrow Festival/UMFK Homecoming rather than have you parade the businesses on Facebook. We hope you join us next year for our 2021 Scarecrow Festival/UMFK Homecoming weekend. Like this page to stay updated on dates and future events.

Our last picture for this game: This past week, The Dude stopped in for some bling - decided on this ring and was shown this antique cash register on display which rings - kaching. What fun! Where can you get the ring with the bling and here kaching?

The Dude is checking out the decor in this salon while waiting for a cut (all that conditioning is making his straw start to turn back to grass and is growing, we think). Where did we stop for a haircut?

If you are driving around, it's always good to run some errands while you are at it. Winter is coming and it is smart ot get your house ready. Popped in here to do just that. Where are we?

Some of the places we went to left The Dude with wanting a better phone, so we stopped here to check out their selection. Where are we in this picture?
