I know the 4th of July is still a few days away, but right now, the weather for the 4th of July is looking absolutely gorgeous!

The weather during the day on the 4rh is calling for mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid 80's! And Wednesday night, for the fireworks in Bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor, the skies are supposed to be mostly clear with temperatures in the mid 60's.

I'll be in Bar Harbor on Wednesday broadcasting on our sister station I-95 from the Town Pier from Noon to 4. I'll also be down there before hand taking pictures of the parade!

If you're down there, stop by and say "Oh hi!"

Here's a list of the activities in Bar Harbor on the 4th of July
Note Blueberry Pancake Breakfast and Seafood Festival are paid events,

The day's festivities kick off with a huge Blueberry Pancake Breakfast from 6-10AM on the Athletic fields down across from the YMCA. Then at 10AM there's a HUGE parade, that typically lasts around a hour, there are so many floats. It goes down Main Street to Cottage Street and thousands line the parade route. There are lobster races at the ballfield and then a huge seafood festival from 11 to 2!

From 11AM on there will be music down on the Town Pier, with live music from Roc Babi, The Blake Rosso Band and The Crown Vics from 3:30 to 9PM.

Then at approximately 9:15 there are fireworks over Frenchman Bay! One of the best places to view the fireworks is in Agamont Park, which becomes a sea of blankets throughout the day, as families set up to listen to music, walk around the town and enjoy the fireworks.

Because of the continued road construction on Route 3, and the detour in place, the Bar Harbor Police Department has come up with a new map to help direct the thousands of people who will be celebrating the 4th of July out of Bar Harbor.
