Above, Eva Szymczak, 3, of South Portland, concentrates on filling a water bottle with assorted knickknacks to make an instrument, one of the many children’s activities at WillardFest in South Portland Saturday, July 13. At right,from left, Vanessa Therrien, Lily Basinger and Ella Basinger check out a South Portland Fire Department fire truck. The third annual WillardFest also featured live music, food from Elsmere BBQ and David’s 388, a story time from South Portland Public Library children’s librarian Kim Campbell, and a children’s parade. Laurel LaBauve, the president of the organizing committee for the event, said WillardFest likely drew between 800 and 900 residents from the area, almost double last year’s figure.
