BANGOR - If you've driven through downtown Bangor at night lately, you might have noticed the Maine Discovery Museum has become a disco.
About a year and a half ago the lights on their sign partially blew out with only Maine Disco remaining illuminated.
It's costly to repair, so those at the museum are using the sign for inspiration.
They'll be hosting two fundraisers, a 70's themed party at Seasons on April 5, and a kids disco skate this Friday night at Great Skates.
"All funds from the event are going to help restore the facade, fix the lights, and the famous frog clock," Niles Parker, Executive Director of the museum says. "We're going to have new banners made for outside. It just really needs to be cleaned up."
"I've got my costume and I'm ready to party," Amelia Verhar, a little girl who helped plan the disco, says. "It's fun! You can roller skate and enjoy 70s music," Eliza Parker adds.
Once again, the kids disco skate will be held this Friday from 4 until 6 at Great Skates. Admission is $4.50.
