31st Annual Moxie Festival This Weekend In Lisbon Falls


It’s a tradition in Maine and it’s certainly an aquired taste, I am talking about Moxie. It’s a soft drink that will bring strong reactions from people who have tried it. It was created in 1876 by Dr. Augustin Thompson in Lowell, Massachusetts. It was orginially marketed as a panacea that would cure paralysis, nervousness and insomnia.The town of Lisbon Falls, in Central Maine, celebrates everything Moxie with the annual Moxie Festival.
