Presque Isle -

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine¬† — To kick off the 2011 Presque Isle Balloonfest, Main Street merchants of Presque Isle will be participating in another ‚ÄúMain Street Mania‚Äô from 4-11 p.m. Thursday Aug. 25, Main Street or Route 1 will be closed to traffic from Blake Street to Academy Street during this time.
The theme for the 2011 Main Street Mania is ‚ÄúA World of Travel Destinations‚ÄĚ.

Caf√© Sorpresso will become Hawaii for the evening. It will be featuring a complete menu of Hawaiian fare within the restaurant and will be selling appetizers from Hawaii on the sidewalk. The Northeastland Hotel will be transformed into a New Orleans location with food and sounds from the legendary French Quarter. Governor‚Äôs, Dead River, and other Main Street merchants located outside the closed-off section will stake out new locations on Main Street for the evening within the area from Church Street to Academy Street and will be presenting the fare of other travel destinations.
