Volunteers on both sides of the new Martin’s Point Bridge, Route 1, are planning a celebratory BridgeBASH on Sunday, September 14th, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The Bash is designed to celebrate the new bridge that links Falmouth and Portland over the Presumpscot River, and offers a much improved travel experience for everyone.
The Bash will take place on the new bridge’s 10-1/2 foot-wide multi-use path and spill over into adjacent Martin’sPoint Health Care. Free parking for the event is available at the Martin’sPoint Health Care parking garage. The event is free of charge and everyone is welcome.
Participants can view antique cars, funky bicycles, and a proposed new trail that will link the multi-use path to the Martin’s Point trail, as well as photos of the new bridge under construction and details of its engineering. Other fun attractions include lots of music, food trucks, face-painting and homemade pie!
Those proud of their culinary skills who are interested in donating a pie for a Bake Off should go to falmouthmemoriallibrary.org and click on the Bridge Bash Bake Off icon. Or call the library at 781-2351.
The event is sponsored by the City of Portland, Town of Falmouth and Martin’s PointHealth Care, and is FREE to all. For more details on the event, go to the event FaceBook page (Martin’sPointBridge BASH) and ask for more information, or contact Carol Morris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
