I've often heard children say, "There's nothing to do today". I beg to differ. I'd like to inspire you to do something. Anything. Read. Bake. Hike. Fish. Plant. Sail. Climb. Play. Reach. Move. Laugh. Dream; and take time to sit with me on The Old Granite Step.

Creative pumpkins along Main Street in Damariscotta, Maine

Every October, Damariscotta, Maine draws thousands of people to the Damariscotta Pumpkin Fest.  There are all kinds of pumpkin related activities for kids and adults alike.  The Regatta is one of our favorite aspects of the festival....giant pumpkins are carved out and outboard motors are attached!  The first year this took place, we were able to easily grab a front row seat on the shore.  Now, it's one of the most popular events at the event and almost impossible to get close to!  The very colorful and artistic pumpkins shown here are along Main Street.  I urge as many of you as possible to go and view these beauties.  While you're there, grab lunch at one of the fabulous restaurants in the area.


 My absolute favorite!

Keep an eye on the website for information regarding the 2016 Pumpkin Fest!

Note - The new State of Maine champion pumpkin (and all time record holder for the state) weighs 1,727.5 pounds!
