Saco kicked off its 250th birthday with a parade June 9 with more than 100 groups participating. The celebration will last through next month. Turn to the Courier each week for updates on what’s going on. See page 4 of this week’s paper for an update written by Camille Smalley, program and education manager for Dyer Library/Saco Museum. See more photos from the parade at the Courier’s Facebook page: Biddeford - Saco - OOB Courier. (Molly Lovell-Keely photos)
