Belfast Lobster Predicts Summer’s End Date

The Barons of Belfast waded into the water of the Passagassawakeag River on Labor Day and pulled old Passy Pete from the waters to find out if summer was indeed over.

Turns out we’ll have six more weeks of it.

Passy Pete, a lobster, is Belfast’s equivalent of Punxsutawney Phil, Pennsylvania’s infamous ground hog, and yesterday, for the third year in a row he made his prediction.

Heritage Park, the Barons, those dressed in shorts and shirts that resembled black tie garb, watched a Passy Pete, yes, named after the river he resides in, presumably pointed to a certain scroll to be read.

Much to the delight of those that gathered on the banks of the river the scroll said “summer will last six more weeks.”

Throw that lobster back into the water boys and let’s skip work again today and hit the beach!  Thanks to Passy Pete we now have until October 16th to get wet!
