Maine residents enjoy free State Park admission

STATEWIDE - Maine residents got a special invitation to State Parks and Historic Sites on Sunday.

Any vehicle with a Maine license plate was allowed free entry to any State Park, with a few exceptions. Visitors at Camden Hills State Park took advantage of the opportunity.

"We're just hanging out, grilling, on Fathers' Day," said Matt Davis of Lewiston. "We're gonna go up Mount Battie for the afternoon. Family, friends, good times."

This annual event encourages residents to check out State Parks, while thanking them for their support of the areas.

Kayla joined the ABC 7 & FOX 22 news team in May of 2017. She got into journalism because she loves talking with people, and she's incredibly grateful to share the stories of Mainers throughout the region.

She got her start in broadcasting way back in middle school as a member of a morning announcements TV broadcast club, and her love for the news industry took off from there.

Kayla graduated from Penn State University in 2017 with degrees in broadcast journalism and Spanish. During her time as a student at Penn State, Kayla was an executive producer and reporter for the "Centre County Report", an Emmy award-winning student-run newscast. She studied abroad in Ronda, Spain and traveled to Panama with an international reporting class. Kayla kept busy in college, spending four years working as a student manager in the dining hall.

Kayla grew up in the village of Shawnee-on-Delaware, located in the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania, so transitioning into life in Vacationland was a piece of cake! A self-described winter fanatic, she loves all things snow related, including hitting the slopes on her snowboard. She also likes hiking, kayaking or doing anything outdoors. She loves meeting new people so if you see her around, be sure to stop and say hi!
