The Neighborhood House
The Neighborhood House has been many things to many people since its doors opened in 1905. In those hundred-plus years, the Town of Mount Desert has certainly gone through a plethora of change, as too has The Neighborhood House itself. One thing that has remained the same, however, is the mission of The Neighborhood House and the important role it plays within our community.
The vaudeville performances and bowling lanes from years past may have long since been superseded by community celebrations, yoga classes, and the like; but the spirit with which it was founded remains the same. In fact, today, The Neighborhood House offers more programs and events than it has at any other point in its long history.

This summertime tradition continues for a sixteenth straight season, as as always will feature lots of lavishly decorated bikes, trikes, scooters, and wagons... along with ice cream sundaes.
We'll get underway at 5:30pm when our lawn will be covered with all sorts of unique items to decorate your "ride" with-- help yourself! At 6pm will have a parade along Main Street, and wrap it up with sundaes (and homemade hot fudge sauce) on the lawn!
