The very popular Bucksport Bay Festival that was scheduled for July 10th through the 12th has been cancelled because of the pandemic.  But, another big time event will be extended from one day to two!

Members of the Chamber's Board of Directors have voted to cancel this year's Bay Festival. A recent letter from the Bucksport Area of Commerce states. "In lieu of a Bay festival that will suffer due to the current state of the world, we are looking to the fall. Ghostport (with fireworks display) will be extended to two days instead of just one!"

Ghostport in Bucksport usually features fun things coffin races down Main Street along with many other ghoulish events.  This year's Ghostport is scheduled for Saturday, October 17th.  No word yet as to which day it will be extended to, which will be either that Friday or Sunday.
