Bangor's Business and Economic Development Committee is already talking about summer events.
"The Downtown Bangor partnership is trying to come up with some great, new fresh events for downtown to attract people to our downtown business" Bangor City Councilor Gibran Graham said.
In lieu of the Cool Sounds Concert Series, the Downtown Bangor coordinator is hoping to bring in a 1,000-foot waterslide, hot air balloon rides, and a sidewalk art festival.
"We took a hard look at the events that we have been putting up for years and really evaluated whether or not they were helping downtown grow," Betsy Lundy, downtown coordinator, said.
Some major concerns that were discussed were whether or not these events would help downtown in the long run and the logistics of putting the water slide on Park Street.
"I think one-off events can definitely add something to the flavor of downtown and bring some people that haven't been here before" Graham added. "But I think something sustainable adds to the sustainability of the downtown."
"I think for the waterslide, it's Park Street or bust, but thankfully we have lots of other ideas if this doesn't pan out for the city this year," Lundy said.
As of now, the city has not been asked to help fund any of these events.
