The first indication of Old Hallowell Day appeared in the Kennebec Journal, dated July 19, 1968 – “With Saturday’s weather forecast promising sun, Old Hallowell Day, 1968 promises to be a success.”
This first Day and many more were organized by a group of willing volunteers – Hallowell Improvement Association – which had as their first project the cleaning up of the waterfront. This was so successful with the removal of many loads of trash and the addition of grass, flower beds and herb gardens that the group wanted to show off their work. They decided to have a community celebration day to show the citizens the Water Front Park area that was now ready for their enjoyment.
Road race, parade, music, arts & crafts fair and fireworks.
