In 2022, the Division of Economic Development has launched Summer Thursdays, a weekly food truck event beginning June 30th at Little Falls Recreation Area. This family-friendly event features a rotating selection of food trucks every week, along with games, music and plenty of space for people to stretch out and enjoy Maine summer at its finest.
Local Gorham businesses like Nappi Distributors, Harvey Performance, Great Falls Construction and Jotul USA are also joining in the fun, showcasing the work they do and highlighting employment opportunities that are available.
In addition, the consultant team hired by the Town of Gorham and Town of Windham — Aceto Landscape Architecture and North Star Planning — are on hand weekly to introduce the Villages Master Plan project, a planning initiative focused on the Little Falls/South Windham village area.
The word is out about this event with an estimated 300 attendees each week, which has become a weekly visit for nearby residents of Gorham and Windham, and other neighboring towns. The vendors are happy too, especially those commuting from nearby Windham, Westbrook and the Lakes Region.
