4 Fun Ways to Spend Time with Mom

Celebrate mom and the women you love this month with a fun outing. There’s lots going on all around Dirigo Pines in May — here are just a few ideas to make a new memory with mom and those you love…

Color Bangor 5K

You can walk, run, jump, skip, or dance the 5K route with friends and family all while supporting the American Folk Festival on the Bangor Waterfront. Click here for more info.


Looking for something fun and different? How about a showing of “Cabaret” at the Collins Center for the Arts at UMaine in Orono on Tuesday, May 15 at 7 p.m.? Come hear some of the most memorable songs in theatre history, including “Cabaret,” “Willkommen”and “Maybe This Time.” Please note, Cabaret is for mature audiences. Click for details.

The Spitfire Grill

Take mom to the Penobscot Theatre’s production of The Spitfire Grill, with shows from April 26-May 13. It’s the story of a feisty parolee who follows her dreams to sleepy Gilead, Wisconsin, and finds a place for herself working at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill. The diner is for sale but with no offers on the table, Hannah decides to raffle it off. Whoever submits $100 and the most compelling essay will win the grill. Soon, mail is arriving by the barrel and things are definitely cookin’ at the Spitfire Grill. Get tickets at penobscottheatre.org/show/the-spitfire-grill.

Sea Dogs’ Mother’s Day 5K

Take mom on a road trip to Portland for the Portland Sea Dogs’ 18th Annual Mother’s Day 5k Road Race on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 13 from 9:15-11:15 a.m. Proceeds from the race go towards Maine breast cancer patients and research. There will also be a Kid’s Run that is free of charge. Slugger The Sea Dog and his Mom lead the way on the flat 5K course which begins in front of the Portland Expo building, travels down Congress Street, turning down Stevens Avenue, and making a right onto Brighton Avenue back down Deering Avenue into Fitzpatrick Stadium. The race culminates inside Hadlock Field in front of the third base dugout. Click for details.
