Saco, Maine - Summer officially kicks off this Saturday at 11am when Funtown Splashtown USA opens the amusement park for its 44th season!
This year the park is pulling out all the stops to make this the best opening weekend ever. "We have special events planned for both days this weekend," said Ed Hodgdon, Funtown's marketing manager. "If fact, we have a different event nearly every day this month."

Groups will perform in front of adjudicators and then be given a mini clinic. Concert bands will perform at Loranger Middle School in Old Orchard Beach, while choirs will perform on the park grounds. After the performance and clinic, the students will get to celebrate by finishing out their day on the rides.
On Sunday May 16, the park will celebrate Moms with its annual Mother's Day Celebration. All moms get a free bracelet with a paying guest. The first 200 moms receive a free gift package including a carnation from Maine Floral Creations in Scarborough and a free ticket to a Portland Sea Dogs game.
