CHERRYFIELD — A program called May Madness will feature a series of fun-oriented community events on Friday, May 1, and Saturday, May 2. The program will be conducted as a way to raise money for the annual Cherryfield Fourth of July fireworks program.

The annual community breakfast will be served from 7 to 10 a.m. Saturday, May 2, in the Cherryfield Snowmobile Clubhouse on Ridge Road. The meal will be served by the Cherryfield Firecracker Ladies group. A scavenger hunt will be held at 11 a.m. along the banks of the Narraguagus River in the downtown district.
The Float-a-Blueberry Race will be held Saturday, after the riverside hunt for treasures. “Berries” can be purchased for $1. Prizes will be awarded at the finish line.
A bug screen contest will be held at Blueberry Ford Inc. Owners of trucks and cars are urged to enter their bug-screened trucks or cars in the competition from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Judges will render their decisions at 3:30 p.m.
