“Night Sky Art Show” in Winter Harbor, Fest in Acadia,

Whopaints Studio in Winter Harbor announces the “Night Sky Art Show” on display through Monday, Sept. 17. The Night Sky Art Show, held in the Old Masonic Hall in Winter Harbor, honors the collaboration between many organizations to bring the Acadia Night Sky Festival to the area. In most residential areas, our view of the Milky Way is partly obscured by light pollution. Acadia National Park provides a place to view the natural beauty of the sky without much interference from artificial lighting. Many demonstrations and festivities are planned as part of the festival. Whopaints will be hosting okoto music and star viewing at 8 p.m. on each night of the festival.
On M.D.I., Oli’s Trolley and Acadia National Park have partnered to provide a free “Shuttle to the Stars” for the Star Party on Cadillac Mountain, which will take place 8 – 10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, as part of the Acadia Night Sky Festival. The Shuttle to the Stars will run continuously between the Hulls Cove Visitor Center and Cadillac Mountain from 7:30-10 p.m. The last shuttle will depart the Hulls Cove Visitor Center at 9:30 p.m., and the last shuttle will depart Cadillac Mountain at 10 p.m. More information about the festival is available online at acadianightskyfestival.com.
