Bed and Breakfast Maine namely the Atlantic Birches Inn an Old Orchard Beach Inn would like to show you the Better Way To Stay and inform you of one of our favorite events of the year the Rockland Lobster Festival 

Lobster Parade

 

The Festival a 65-year-old tradition, which comes alive like clockwork the first week of August every year, provides a sense of seasonal timekeeping; for others, a centerpiece for homecoming gatherings; and for others, a reconnection with the pleasure of basic hometown charm and plenty of Lobsters. 

Some of the key events are as follows

The “Great International Lobster Crate Race” is open to all people

Crate Race

 crazy enough to risk falling into the chilly ocean with crowds of people watching your every move as you race across floating crates.  Sunday August 5, 2012 at the Information Booth starting at 7:00 am. 

The “Parade”  goes down Main Streetand  features the Grand Marshall, the newly crowned 2012 Sea Goddess, the Sea Princesses andall  their Escorts, King Neptune and his court and a variety of marching bands and units, floats, drill teams and more.

Lobster Tent

 ”Lobster Serving Tent“  Come in for one, two or three lobster dinners includes a butterred roll and fresh local corn on the cob. Menu is lobster dinners,  steamed clams, fisherman’s platters, crab cakes, shore dinners, fried shrimp, fried haddock, and fried calamari.

    A tradition 65 years strong can’t be wrong. From the pictures, it is certain that Rockland loves their lobsters. The crate race is also a great idea, especially for daring friends and taking friendly wagers on participants.
