How the Hill Gets Built…

Biddeford WinterFest is known for its speedy hill right in the middle of the downtown. And in case you haven’t noticed, it goes on every year, no matter the weather or snow conditions. How does that happen!?

Biddeford is very fortunate to have a crew of volunteer construction companies in town who love seeing kids enjoy the snow! New Life Church gathers its members to cheerfully staff the hill and this year they’ll provide free cocoa, snacks and even hats and mittens!

Thank you so much to New Life ChurchThyng PavingPeters Construction and Excavation, Larry Patoine Construction and Dee Quality Foundations & Excavating  for all the wonderful work on the sledding hill! And, thank you to Dead River for the fuel donation for this crew!

But in 1997, Juston turned in his gun and badge and left the dangerous streets of rural Maine and moved to the quiet community of Queens, New York. While living in NYC he worked his way into the weekend line-up at Comic Strip Live, Stand-Up New York, Dangerfield’s, Gotham, Caroline’s on Broadway and the New York Times called him, “Destined for stardom.” Juston would go on to sign sitcom development deals with Warner Brothers, CBS Productions, IFC and Comedy Central.
