Yarmouth Clam Festival.
This three day festival includes a fantastic parade (remember, I come from a long heritage of parade watchers...so I KNOW my parades), a wonderful crafts fair (Maine artisans galore!), a carnival, a long list of festival activities (including favorites like firefighter's muster, a clam shucking contest and a canoe/kayak race). And, of course, food. Lots of food, including -- and, no big surprise here - clams, anyway you can imagine. Fried clams. Clam chowder (or, Chow-dah, as it is said here in Maine.). Clam Rolls. Steamers (that's steamed clams for those of you not familiar with the native tongue.)
I've been going to the Yarmouth Clam Festival since I was a little girl. Of course, I've missed some years here and there...but, I have lots of fun memories of this festival -- now celebrating its 45th year!
Will I see you there?
