Max Creek @ The Colonial Theater

Max Creek @ The Colonial Theater

Max Creek has reached its fourth decade of playing music, and you’d be hard pressed to find a music fan in the Northeast that hasn’t heard of them. Creek’s style lacks pretense; there is no genre title that can define them. From the beginning, they mixed rock, country, reggae, soul, jazz and calypso in with their own great songwriting, and it’s all comes out sounding like Creek.

This unique event features student exhibits, eco-friendly vendors and organizations, food, games and fun for the kids, arts and crafts, WordxWord, and much more.

The Cooler Communities Challenge makes it easy and convenient for you to take steps to reduce your carbon footprint. By accessing the resources and presentations at the expo, you can choose to make pledges and adopt new habits depending on what makes sense for you. These actions will not only be good for the earth but will save you money as well. The pledges of all attendants will be added up to determine the collective reduction of our community’s carbon footprint.

 I will also attach a flyer and a few photos.
