BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - The American Folk Festival is taking over Bangor this weekend. The Festival kicks off Friday afternoon and lasts through Sunday.

The festival is a free admission, but festivalgoers are asked to make a suggested donation of $10 a day or $20 per family.

There is a children's area with activities for the whole family and dozens of food vendors offering ethnic, regional and traditional festival favorites. Also, there are a variety of unique Maine Made crafts available on site as well.

If you've been attending the event each year, you could see some noticeable differences this time around. One of those differences will be the paved walkways and added lighting on the waterfront that the city added this year.
