The Moxie Festival

If your not from the Northeast, you probably haven't hear of the soft drink Moxie. It's humble life started as a medicine. It still has a medicinal taste to it, but I love it!! My kids grew up on it. Really, my kids drank it as children and still love it today.
Well, in Maine, Lisbon, Maine to be exact, there is a whole weekend dedicated to this wonderful, unique soda. Yea, a festival. A parade, fireworks, street vendors, road races... and so on. It's a fun time for all and my daughter and her friends went over the weekend and had a blast.

These pics are from "Flickr", and they are from 2006, I forgot my camera yesterday.
If your ever in the northeast, come around and get yourself a drink of Moxie!

I've never heard of it before but how fun to have a weekend like this! Does it kinda have that taste like Dr. Pepper? I always thought that had kind of a mediciney taste. :)

Hope you had a great weekend! At least the weather is better. :)

Interesting because so many sodas started out as medicinal "health drinks". All the diet coke i drink is now actually considered a vice. Weird huh?

I don't know how anyone can drink that stuff. It never tasted good to me. But, the festival is always fun! Your sister

Moxie is new to me too, but I absolutely love their vintage logo and font!

Wishing you a marvelous Tuesday!
