Kelly custom designed her costume, which she named “Nightspiritwings.” Above right, from left, Holly Culloton presents Johnny Orgill and Lillian Cyr with the first ever prince and princess of Bacon Street Festival crowns. The two were chosen for their positive attitude and interest in helping the community. When Culloton asked Orgill what community members can do to help the area, he replied, “Play basketball.” Lucca Hall, left, and Liam Hall enjoy one of the many family friendly activities at this year’s festival. Biddeford Community Development Coordinator Linda Waters said the festival is about empowering the neighborhood and revitalizing support. The event is put on in part with funds from the community development block grant, a federal program designed to help community infrastructure and public service. (Grant McPherson photos) 9p3.jpg
