Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
‘Something silly’ hits Damariscotta
Bangor Daily News - 10/12/2009.
By Abigail Curtis – Damariscotta: Costumed people raced around Damariscotta Harbor on Sunday in giant pumpkins that were hollowed out and equipped with outboard motors. Two thousand people cheered them on from shore, clapping when they made it and clapping when they didn’t.
