Lobster festival Hometown Day moves to Sunday
ROCKLAND — The Maine Lobster Festival, held every year the first week of August on the waterfront, is changing Hometown Day — with free admission to all — to Sunday this year.
“In the past, Wednesday has been free admission, but for several reasons that will change this year,” said Nancy Jeffers, the festival’s director in charge of gate admissions. “Admission on Wednesday is $5 for adults, $2 for kids, under 5 for free. Thursday, Friday and Saturday will be $8, and Sunday is free. This will allow folks to enjoy a full day at the festival for free.”
The 65th annual Maine Lobster Festival will take place at Harbor Park Wednesday through Sunday, Aug. 1-5. The lobster festival was recently named one of the five best fairs and festivals in the United States by NBC's “Today” show.
