WATERVILLE — The 43rd annual Waterville Intown Arts Fest is set for 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday on Main Street, which will be closed to traffic starting at 7 a.m.

Dozens of artists will line Main Street for one of the state’s oldest art shows. Free parking will be available all day in The Concourse parking lot.

This year’s festivities will include live music on the Silver Street Tavern patio, a local foods sampling at Barrels Community Market from noon to 2 p.m., hair wraps and face painting at Happy Trails and live music at Jorgensen’s Café.

Visitors can also stop by participating businesses to enter a drawing for a gift basket featuring merchandise and gift certificates from a number of downtown businesses. In addition, there will be a art scavenger hunt. Families will be asked to find specific objects and figures in the many paintings along Main Street as well as identify a few famous artists.

The event will also host the kick-off of a new community mural project sponsored by Common Street Arts. The Common Street Arts mural project features a mobile, hexagonal prism of white walls, which community members are invited to paint. The mural will travel throughout downtown through Saturday, Aug. 4. and will then be installed at the Common Street Arts gallery through August.
