The thermometer is beginning to rise and Portland, Maine is ready to welcome in summer with the Summer Kickoff Weekend beginning on Friday, June 9th and leading up the 44th Annual Old Port Festival on Sunday, June 11 from 11am-5pm.

The weekend will start with the Square Hop & Window Walk from 6-8pm with continuous entertainment in four locations; Longfellow Square, Congress Square Park, Monument Square, and Post Office Park. You’ll be entertained with music, balancing acts & stunts, we understand.

On Saturday, you can Walk the Working Waterfront from 11am-3pm and according to PortlandMaine.com this will be “a unique opportunity to explore Portland’s marine economy. Dozens of businesses will be open up and down the wharves & piers lining Commercial Street. Come down to amble, to sample seafood snacks, to climb aboard a boat — or just to enjoy the atmosphere.”

Wrap up the Summer Kickoff Weekend on Sunday at the family-friendly Old Port Festival featuring music, art, food, and entertainment for all ages. For more information on the schedules at the various stages throughout downtown visit Old Port Festival Schedule 2017.
