The month kicks off with the food that kicks back. Sample wings from restaurants all over the Dirigo Pines region. Taste test, vote for your favs, and enjoy a beer sample. As if that’s not enough, attendees also get mini whoopee pies and live music from Chris Ross and the North (check them out here: www.chrisrossandthenorth.com).
