Maine Lobster Festival
July 29-August 2
No place on earth does lobster quite like Maine. Every year, the city of Rockland celebrates the clawed crustacean with parades, crate races, U.S. Navy ship tours, cooking contests and all-you-can-eat pancakes. That's right, pancakes. But don't worry, the main event is always about the lobster—and they have more than 20,000 pounds to go around!
While your there, don't miss King Neptune and his court arrive from the briny deep to raise the official lobster fest flag. So, grab your bib and get ready to dig in.
