Everybody's doing events where you get a bib number and event shirt, dress in wacky outfits and get an endorphin rush? But why run when you can dance your way through the Old Port? Even bystanders caught the dance fever. #dancemile
The 51st annual Yarmouth Clam Festival was the hottest place to be this weekend, with plenty of lime rickeys to wash down those fried clams. The food-focused community festival offers music, concerts, shopping, rides, races, and, of course, the Maine State Clam Shucking Contest.
You know where no one minds being put into a difficult position? Maine YogaFest. The Friday night kickoff party, Klub Krishna, featured everything from circus acts to sparkling halos to a melodian player... and, of course, plenty of downward dogs to get things warmed up for three days of yogic bliss at East End Community School in Portland.
The Color Run, or the “Happiest 5k on the Planet” was a huge hit Sunday morning in South Portland. Runners and walkers of all ages traversed the course, becoming more and more colorful as they went. This tropical race was co-presented by The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center.
The third annual Great Falls Brewfest drew a crowd of 1500 people to Lewiston.

Making the phrase "beer run" quite literal, the Craft Brew Races returned to Portland with a 5K run around the Back Cove and an all-afternoon party at Payson Park.

The first full day of Maine Startup and Create Week (MSCW) 2016 capped up with a free launch party for Work in Place at Ocean Gateway in Portland. Co-founder Michael Erard coined the term Work in Place for remote workers, telecommuters, flexible workers, freelancers... basically, anyone who works and isn't based exclusively in a central office. Because, according to the new website for Work in Place, that's 43 percent of us these days. #MSCW2016
