The annual Waldoboro Day community festival Saturday, June 18 will begin 7 a.m. with a pancake breakfast and end around 11 p.m. with the final steps of the traditional street dance.

Live music sets, ranging between 30 and 60 minutes each, will run downtown between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., after which there will be a rollicking two-hour community karaoke sing. This year’s performers include Joe Murphy, Dusty & Joanna, Jim & Kat, Playin’ Possum, Sideways Highways, the Melanie Pagurko Dance Group and the Ale House String Band.

At 7 p.m., The Meenhaga Grange and King Solomon’s Masonic Lodge will sponsor an organ and piano concert by Ron Dolloff and Paul Smeltzer at the lodge, 860 Main St. A free-will offering will be taken to support the floor refinishing project at the grange hall.

Meanwhile, back on the downtown streets, Midcoast rock band Rave On will play the annual street dance from 7:30 to 11 p.m. Rain location for the street dance will be the Waldo Theatre.
