The festival is a very popular one in Maine. It was very crowded, but fortunately, there were shuttles running from several local schools in the area. Directions were easy to get from the hotel staff or newspaper. There was a ship from the Navy docked there and tours were being offered that day. The lines were extremely long, and it was a hot day, so we passed on that. The food was wonderful, not only lobster (although that was the main event) but other items as well. We bought several items from the craft festival set up there, including a beautiful painting of a harbor scene. The drive up was nice, and we stopped on the way back to view the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse.
