One of the most spectacular events to be held on Casco Bay is happening this weekend. It's great family fun and is raising money for a wonderful cause. It's MS Harborfest Weekend. And there's a challenge to raise $50,000.  They are close to reaching that mark!

It's a weekend that includes a regatta, lobster boat races, tugboat muster & races and awesome auction.  It begins Friday, August 15 with the benefit auction at Portland Yacht Services. The regatta is on Saturday. Look for the lobster boat and tug boat races on Sunday in Casco Bay.

Sailboat Skipper Kitt Watson of Camden, ME is challenging all other skippers taking part in the 33rd Annual MS Harborfest Regatta this weekend. If they raise a combined $50,000, he will match that amount for a total of $100,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society! This will go a long way to help the 3,000 people in Maine living with MS.
