The event is also prominently displayed on the Lewiston Artisan Farmers Market's Facebook page:
The Brickyard/BBC owners are huge supporters of the Lewiston community. I watched firefighters work on Tuesday in unbelievable heat and smoke to fight the fire. It seemed like half the village was there, some watching in astonishment, some in tears.
Many commenting on the street corners how proud they were of the work of firefighters because "they kept the entire block from going up".
I know this event will have the backing of the entire community, I will certainly be buying my tickets!
