Boothbay Harbor Hosts 40th Annual Fisherman's Festival April 26-28, 2013 REPLY BY EMAIL
40th Annual Fisherman’s Festival April 26-28, 2013 Help celebrate the Maine fishing season with trap hauling, codfish relay races, fish fry, lobster crate racing and much, much more! Even though it seems like this festival is really reserved for Mainers themselves, the tourist love it!!

It is usually cold, so layer, layer, layer!! 8 a.m. starts the Codfish Relay Races — the streets are full of excitement! The Codfish Relay Races were followed by the Bait Shoveling Race, the Head-to-Head Lobster Trap Hauling Competition, and my favorite, the Lobster Crate Race - in which participants must run along the tops of lobster crates strung between two town docks is particularly daring.
