BANGOR – in anticipation for the summer, hotels in Bangor are being booked in advance.
This in part due to the extensive Waterfront Concert list one of the biggest Bangor has seen. And even though the Canadian dollar is now down compared to the us dollar, Kerri Tripp from the Greater Bangor Convention and Visitor Bureau said she sees Bangor as the place to be this summer.
“We have graduations that are coming up, we have Senior League World Series, and we have the 15th year of the American Folk Festival, so this summer really looks to be strong.” Tripp said.
Tripp says this is all due to the region working together in the past few years. With more tourists traveling to Katahdin and Bar Harbor, Northern Maine is finally seeing the pay off.
