We were happy to be at last Friday's #artwalk to wish the Belfast Creative Coalition's Kimberly Callas a fond farewell! Kimberly has been a champion of the creative economy and promoting the arts in Waldo County since 2012. We wish her the best in her new endeavor leading the sculpture department at Monmouth University, and we welcome Emily Baer as she takes on the role of Executive Director for BCC! ...

***UPDATE*** Owner was located. Thank you to all that inquired about the kitten and shared our call for help.
Belfast community: Ofc. Kelley located this feline roaming the streets of Belfast without a chaperone last night in the area of High Street and Pearl Street intersection. He decided that since he was alone in his patrol car and without anyone to converse with, he would pick it up and have it ride along with him for a little while. Ofc. Kelley was hoping to find the owners during his shift but was unsuccessful in reuniting the cat with its family. As of this morning the little rascal is still here, unclaimed. If you or someone you know is missing a young and energetic kitten please contact us. It does have a blackish collar with white skulls on it.

Hal RichardsonOK -Our Town Belfast-I have a stoopid flatlander question so make fun of me all you want- I see lots of people regularly using the kayak area by the boathouse and the horseshoe shaped area in Heritage park as a beach -kids especially like to play in the water at Heritage Park and both areas are a good place for the dogs to cool off. Is there a reason that we don't have some sand in those areas to make it a bit nicer. I'm guessing that they really don't want a bunch of people swimming around there and I don't know anything about the water quality but most people are just wading about and I think for a few hundred dollars of sand we'd have a very attractive area for people to stick their toes in the water or relax in a beach chair. Seems like it would be cheap to really improve that and give another reason for people to stay around and enjoy the city whilst spending some money. Imagine if we also had free wifi in that area for the tourists.
Brody the Moose (from The Purple Baboon) was recently caught posing with one of our #frontstreetreconstruction flaggers. Don't forget, when you come downtown, to brave the construction and support our local Front Street businesses! Three Tides & Marshall Wharf Brewing Company, The Front Street Pub, Harborwalk Restaurant, The Purple Baboon, and Nautilus Seafood & Grill all appreciate your support! And the paving is starting to look pretty nice down there! #belfastmaine #shoplocal #dinelocal #drinklocal #dustwhatdust #constructionseason #summerinmaine ... See MoreSee Less

Robert HustusJust recently moved back to Belfast
after spending the last 45 years in the Mid-Atlantic region and could
not be more of what this town has become. Growing up here in the late 50s & 60s the slot of industry but the side effects (for lack of a better term) were not pleasant. When I left for college after working one year at the Pants Factory, I thought I would never return. Return to what, for what was
my thinking. I followed Belfast from afar and took notice of it's transformation. All I have to say is...WoW
It is good to be back "home".

The StoryWalk at the Belfast City Park is a marked trail featuring pages of a storybook posted on platforms along the walking route. This collaborative effort between the Belfast Free Library and the City Parks Department is a great way to get kids outside, walking, and learning during the summer months! The trail is open during City Park hours. "The Bear Ate Your Sandwich" is the first featured story.

Belfast has what I thought was a cute little art festival selling pottery and the usual, but it's LARGE and on Belfast's beautiful waterfront.
It was a drizzly day today and I wasn't planning on taking photos of anything but I couldn't resist when I saw how nice it was.
NICE! There. I said it.
Happening tomorrow, too. Bring an umbrella and your wellies.
