Bangor is so much fun (and a little bit frenzied) on Thursdays in the summertime, with music and merriment filling the streets as revelers boogie down at the free shows of the Cool Sounds Concert Series and get ready for the latest Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion concert. Jimmy Buffet and his parrothead posse will be rocking the Waterfront later in the evening, so take a break from preparatory margaritas and dancing at our signature summertime oasis! For our final Oasis yurt of Summer 2016, we’re pitching one of Caleb Erskine’s bright and breezy Living Intent yurts at our store right in Downtown Bangor and filling the airy, serene space with FREE fun activities for mind, body and soul. Escape the bustling foot-traffic and explore henna tattoos, hula hooping, and more at Mexicali Blues.
Our Bangor Oasis opens at 4:00 PM, and you won’t want to miss:
Yurt Construction with Caleb Erskine
See how quick and easy it is to assemble an awesomely unique and portable nomadic home, and bring Caleb your questions about building or buying one of your own!
4:00 pm – 7:00 pm
FREE Henna Body Art with Ella Coose
Get a FREE, all-natural, temporary henna tattoo from Ella, our amazing henna artist. In traditional Indian culture, mehndi designs awaken the “inner light,” and the intricate beauty of the patterns will be illuminating and inspiring (and as fabulous as your latest fashion finds).

FREE Hooping Demonstration and Instruction with Rochelle Dorr
Our handmade hula hoops in carnival colors are getting everyone in a great summertime groove. Rochelle will help you explore the basics of hooping and get hips swaying (and everyone smiling).
You’ll also be able to browse a marvelous mix of clothing, jewelry, home décor, accessories and gear you always find at Mexicali Blues. You can relax and rejuvenate in Downtown Bangor—visit our Bangor Store this Thursday, August 18th, and see!
This will be our last Oasis Yurt event for the summer, but come see us at the Hidden Valley Nature Center Live Edge Music Festival this Saturday, August 21, where we’ll be getting our groove on and rocking the radical rainbow awesomeness of the Tie Dye Mobile!
