Summer doesn't officially start until June 21st, but Memorial Day is seen as the "unofficial" start of the summer season. According to Travel and Leisure, Bar Harbor is seen as 1 of the Top 10 Memorial Day Destinations!

The Island should certainly be busy this weekend! Remember that the Route 3 construction will pause for Memorial Day Weekend, with workers finishing up on Thursday, May 24th, and they won't resume until Tuesday, May 29th.

The Veendam is scheduled to call on Bar Harbor on Sunday, May 27th

Bar Harbor will host Memorial Day activities on Monday, May 28th with a ceremony down on the Bar Harbor Pier beginning at 10 AM. Prior to the event, the George Edwin Kirk American Legion Post 25 will be offering a continental breakfast from 7:30 to 9:30 AM with coffee, donuts, muffins, fruit salad.
