Correct, we missed so many activities for year 200 of statehood last year.

Activities will be around the Town Wharf and at Horton Emerson Park, which is on Water Street past the hospital. The activities will be related to boats, history, crafts, science and seafood.

There will be a big tent with festival organizers providing information on all the events throughout the village. A good place to start there, but on your way, you’ll see lots of activity on the streets.

It’s one way to celebrate 201 years of statehood.  Musicians will play music related to the sea, boat builders will demonstrate their interesting and special craft and marine scientists will inform us of all things about the sea.

The Holt House is Blue Hill Historical Society’s museum, and if you’re interested in the sea, and the captains of the sea that is the place to be.

Okay, kids, you’ve learned some stuff, let us have some fun. There is the Wilson Museum’s kiddie pool with toy boats.
