Cabin Fever Reliever to offer winter festivities all season long

MADAWASKA, Maine — With colder weather closing in, people in the Valley are preparing for winter including a group that is taking NorState’s Music in the Park and carrying it over to the winter as a “Cabin Fever Reliever,” beginning late October and going through March. 

“We decided that there would be a lot better things in the winter if we could continue the music in the park,” said one of the organizers, Philip Annal. “There’s not a lot going on up here in the winter time.” 

The winter music series is a spin off from NorState’s Music in the Park, a sponsored event that brought music to Bicentennial Park every Thursday during the summer. 

Cabin Fever Reliever will start Oct. 18 and will continue through March every other week on Fridays. Annal said they planned it that way in case a snow storm were to hit one week. 

Event goers will not have to worry about the bitter cold since the bands will play inside the senior center in Madawaska. 

Although there was not a fee in the summer, but it will cost $1 entry fee due to facility usage costs including heat and janitorial maintenance.

Organizer Diane Stroud said that this event is “a win-win situation for the town, and is something to do in the dead of winter.” 

Hotdogs, chicken stew and ployes will be sold as well.
