As you can see from the poster this event has been going on for a lot of years. And in my eyes it seems to wrap up several festivals in one on an idyllic location. Seriously in about 1 and 15 minutes from Bangor you can enjoy a parade, eat pancakes, chug Moxie, eat lobster, watch lobster boat races, shop, plus, plus, plus. How much more Maine can you get. Need more reasons? This year's theme is 'Fly Me To The Moon' complete with the chance to meet Astronaut Rick Hauck. To see everything they are offering click here.
