Big Ship Salvage made it’s way out to Rockland, Maine for the 75th iteration of the Maine Lobster Festival. This even started out as a local marine festival to revive their midcoastal Maine community but turned into an internationally recognized celebration of Maine seafood. This is one of those festivals where there truly is something for everyone. The children are able to participate in races, events and arts/crafts, while the parents are able to indulge in a variety of lobster based dishes. Of course, individual vendors sold their own food but the featured lobster meal was a lobster dinner, presented by the festival itself.
We were located over in the marine tent with a handful of other nautically themed vendors. Everything from pendant lights to fishing floats, we had it all at the lobster festival. We really got to experience the international aspect of the event firsthand as we met with people from all over the country! We even had a visit from Neptune himself! A handful of visitors were people who had been to the website but wanted to stop by and see the items in person. Some customers walked away with their items while others had them shipped directly to their house. We look forward to going back to this show next year!
