Can’t wait for the American Folk Festival (starting Aug. 25 on the Bangor Waterfront)? We Can’t help ya with that right now, but there are a couple other wicked-good festivals comin’ up this weekend, deah!
First off, there’s the annual Lobster Festival this Saturday, Aug. 12 down ta Wintah Hahbbah! Start the morning off with a blueberry pancake breakfast and it gets even better from there, including lobster boat races in the cove, and a lobster dinner and parade. Complete details here.
Or, if you’re an art aficionado, you can travel down to Bucksport on Saturday for that area’s annual waterfront Arts Festival. Forty artists will display their creative talents, and there will also be numerous food vendors.
Third in our sampling of great stuff to do this weekend: another famous “Lots More Than Beans” supper, Saturday at the Prospect Community Center (959 Bangor Road in Prospect, near the corner of US 1A an Maine 174) just a skip & a hop from Bangor, Searsport or Bucksport. Serving is from 4-6 pm. Adults $8, kids under 12 $2. Complete details and menu here, with thanks to BDN Maine.
