BAR HARBOR, Maineâ€”â€śAmerica the Beautiful,â€ť is the 2010 theme for Bar Harborâ€™s July 4th parade. Itâ€™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 â€śgreen eventâ€ť, and for the 3rd year in a row, Bangor Hydro is the â€śGreenâ€ť Sponsor of Bar Harborâ€™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, thereâ€™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 Frenchmanâ€™s Bay.
