Saturday, February 21, 2015: 

11:30am - 1:30pm: Fire Juggler. Outside Cornerstone. "Duncan of doh Naught" combines dangerous object juggling (great amounts of FIRE, authentic and sharp edged weapons and hitherto unknown objects), feats of balance, bawdy and/or tame humor, large doses of audience participation and a true love of performing to keep the audience gasping. Two performances during this time frame, weather permitting. (He can't juggle knives and axes with frozen hands!)

Noon  Ė 1pm: Hat & Mask Making Party. MaineStreet. Make a spectacular hat to wear directly afterward in our hat parade, then take it home as a souvenir of your great weekend in Ogunquit! $5 admission covers hat and supplies.

1pm: Hat & Mask Parade. MaineStreet to Old Village Inn. Wow the crowd with your fabulous fancy hat, or bring a wagon decked out in a Mardi Gras theme. Prizes awarded at Old Village Inn!

1:15pm - 2:15pm: Costume Contest and Award Ceremony. Old Village Inn. Wear your best Mardi Gras costume, hat, or mask, and enter our contest. Are you wearing the best hat or pulling the best float in the parade? Find out at the Awards Ceremony! Refreshments include a King Cake.

Lively concert of rock, folk, pop, and swing. Show-stopping Celtic jigs and old-time fiddle tunes to house-shaking blues rockers, soaring gospel duets, and achingly beautiful ballads.
