Kenney Awards replaced with outdoor event in Augusta
This is usually the time of year when the Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce’s annual Kenney Awards are in the final stages of preparing for the live gala in late January. But not this year.
According to a report on centralmaine.com, this year, things will be different. The event will change and instead of a formal event at the Augusta Civic Center, the celebration will take place outdoors at Augusta’s Mill Park.
It is also a special year, it will celebrate its 90th anniversary. The “Kenneys” as they are called will take place on July 15th, from 4:30 pm to 10 pm. The event will still require tickets to attend, and the plan is to have a stage under a large tent, along with a band and even fireworks to top off the evening.
Mark it on the calendar and get ready for a spectacular night out.
