This year's Damariscotta PumpkinFest and Regatta was crazier than every with wild art!

By far the best festival to hit up in early October is the Damariscotta PumpkinFest & Regatta. The entire city gets involved, and pumpkins take over. Farmers plan for this all year, growing humongous pumpkins that are out of this world. They are used to line the streets in town, and to be decorated and displayed. The pumpkins are also hallowed out for a Regatta race on the harbor. Yes, adults do this! It's a family fun time, and educational as well as about farming. You will NOT want to miss this event next year, after seeing this year's highlight reel.
