Celebrating all things lobster sounds like fun, then you need to head to the Maine Lobster Festival at Rockland’s Harbor Park. The main event is the food of course. Lobster rolls, lobster mac n cheese, lobster bisque and lobster won tons to name a few savory choices.

And the fun ranges from bands to a unique race event – the great international lobster crate race. Contestants run across as many crates as possible before they fall into the cold ocean water. Last year’s winner actually made it across over 1000 crates!

Families can explore the marine tent exhibits which highlight the local marine ecosystem and the local culture that comes from living on the ocean. Find out about lobster fishing, boat building, and local sea creatures. Maine based authors present their books and sign your copy.

You can get additional travel information from the Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce.
