Val's Drive-In, Lewiston, Maine

This small town in southwestern Maine is known for a few things.  It's the place where Sonny Liston "knocked out" Muhammed Ali. It's the home of top-ranked Bates College. And since 1974, Lewiston has been home to Val's Drive-In which still serves up burgers, shakes, and fries, delivered to your car to the accompaniment of '50's-60's music.

       '50s rock and roll, poodle skirts, and a warm summer evening.  The way life should be.

Last night was a busy one in Lewiston.  The annual Great Falls Balloon Festival was over by the river, drawing as many as 100,000 visitors during the weekend.  And a bunch of them stopped at Val's.

Here's what they saw.
