When you turn 150 years old you just can't have a drive by birthday party! So the Town of Lamoine postponed their celebration a year to this Saturday, August 14th, because of COVID. They'll be celebrating their split from the Town of Trenton in 1870

Here's the schedule of events and everything is free to the public

  • 1 p.m. - Parade primarily on the Shore Road. Note parking at the School and Church is reserved for parade participants.
  • 2 p.m. - Small Boat Excursion at Marlboro Beach - Join with your kayak, rowboat or raft. Please wear life jackets.
  • 5:30 - 8:45 - Birthday cake and ice cream, live music, speakers, time capsule, 150! Merchandise for sale. Snack Shack food (hot dogs and chips) will be available with proceeds to benefit the Lamoine School’s 8th grade.  Bring snacks or a picnic if you like. Note the school is a drug, alcohol and tobacco free zone.
  • 9 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. - Fireworks. They will be set off in the back of the school field. The display will be aerials so you should be able to see it from a distance.

In the event of inclement weather, and cancellations/postponements you should check the Town of Lamoine Facebook Page or website

  • If the parade is cancelled, it will not be rescheduled.
  • If the Small Boat Excursion is cancelled, it will be rescheduled at a later date.
  • If the birthday party and fireworks are cancelled, The Lamoine 150! Committee invites the Lamoine community to join them for cake and ice cream and fireworks at the school on Sunday from 7:30 pm-9:30 pm.

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
