Word on the street is Bray’s Brew Pub is the place to be for families during the Maine Blues Festival. Children can dance and play outdoors, while their parents enjoy the show. In town, kids can take part in even more fun, like face painting, creating public art and our personal favorite, the Cub Scouts’ pie throwing booth. Tickets can be purchased at the event for $15.
