Where you can see fireworks in Maine
Nothing is better than watching a beautiful firework display and with it being the Fourth of July on Monday many Maine towns will be holding fireworks displays this weekend or on the 4th. I have a list of the towns I could find that had an announcement about fireworks on either their town government page or Facebook pages and put together this list to make it easier for everyone to find a fireworks display. Please also keep in mind if the weather over the next few days doesn't cooperate it could result in some towns deciding to cancel their fireworks. Have a safe and fun Fourth of July everybody!

Fair season starts this week in Maine
It's that time of year with fairs in New England, and the small town of Monmouth starts the fair season off this week. Monmouth is a town with a population of 4,066 and holds the Monmouth Fair to educate and entertain the public on agricultural matters. The first Monmouth fair was held in 1907.
Acadia National Park
Just one of the many beautiful views from Acadia National ParkThe Maine Writer. Acadia National Park is a favorite spot for visitors to Maine. Acadia had four million visitors in 2021 and is one of the top ten most visited national parks. Once you have visited the park it is easy to see why it receives so many visitors. Acadia is 47,000 acres and has beautiful scenery along with plenty of wildlife that calls Acadia home. Acadia is open all four seasons and each one is just as scenic although my personal favorite is fall with all of the colorful fall foliage on display. I prefer to visit when it's less crowded, and you should make sure you bring your patience because the park can be crowded especially in the summer months.
