Bar Harbor Is Beautiful This Independence Day

Bar Harbor -

July 4th 2009; Chamber of Commerce and Cadillac Award Winner Jill Goldthwait

BAR HARBOR, Maine—“America the Beautiful,” is the 2010 theme for Bar Harbor’s July 4th parade. It’s a fitting motif for obvious reasons and Ocean Properties is proud to once again, present the 2010 Independence Day Celebration which will span 2 days this year. The local Chamber of Commerce continues to partner with MDI Rotary to make this a “green event”, and for the 3rd year in a row, Bangor Hydro is the “Green” Sponsor of Bar Harbor’s Independence Day Celebration.

Feasting on local bounty is a long-held Independence Day tradition here. Saturday, July 3rd will see thousands turn out for a blueberry pancake breakfast and later, a seafood festival of lobster, mussels, corn, strawberry shortcake and more! Between the two feasts, enjoy the Annual Independence Day parade at 10 a.m. brought to you by Bar Harbor Bank & Trust. Following the parade, there’s a craft fair and marketplace at the local YMCA, and a fiercely competitive high-speed lobster race.

On Sunday, July 4th at 7:30PM, the Bar Harbor Town Band warms up the crowd on the Village Green with a free concert, a prelude to the approximate 9pm finale, when fireworks light up Frenchman’s Bay.
