Even though the 52nd Annual Boothbay Harbor Region Windjammer Days Festival officially started last weekend, there’s still plenty of fun, food, music and boat-watching to be had through Saturday, June 28.

Attendees to this year’s Windjammer Days will find something for everyone and most of the events are free. Among the highlights is the fleet of windjammers including one crewed by a motley gang of pirates who will defend Boothbay Harbor against a British invasion reminiscent of the War of 1812.

Also featured are sailboat races, a golf tournament, a unique antique boat parade, a lively street parade, fireworks over the harbor on Wednesday evening, creative kids programs and games, free concerts, and an artist’s alley and craft show and the 34th Annual Rocky Coast Road Race are just a few of the family fun events.
