** The Sunaana Express** For our Boston friends, avoid driving by hopping aboard the Sunaana Express the day before the festival! For the same price as it would normally cost you to travel to Portland, Amtrak's private car of festival attendees will feature a mini-concert of "Acoustic Funky-Folk-Rock" singer-songwriter Connor Garvey. Allagash beer will be available to purchase on the car. The train will leave Boston's North Station at 6:15 PM and arrive at Thompson's Point at 8:50 PM. The Sunaana Express is brought to you by Downeast Magazine, the Press Hotel, and Allagash Brewing Company. PLEASE NOTE: Sunaana Express rickets are for the train only and do not include admission to the festival. Be sure to bring your printed copy of this ticket to the train station. Passengers are responsible for finding their own return trip.
