Thomas Ian Nichols and the Thomas Nicholas Band, or TNB, will bring their catchy pop/rock hooks to Fort Kent on Saturday, August 9th.  Nicholas has appeared in movies such as A Kid in King Arthur's Court and Rookie of the Year but he made a name for himself playing Kevin Myers in the American Pie films. There will also be a Johnny Cash Tribute act, and more acts to be announced as the planning progresses.

According  to the 'Freedom Fest 2014' website, the event hopes to 'support those who have served with honor.'  This will be a celebration of veterans and their families who make the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom.  So pencil it in - Saturday, August 9th, 2014.  Freedom Fest in Fort Kent.
