ROCKLAND, Maine — Editors note: The video above is from The Maine Lobster Festival in 2019.
In a Facebook post Tuesday, the board said the festival still plans to continue its college scholarship program despite not hosting the event this year. Their hope is to continue to highlight the local community and the Maine Lobster Industry over the course of the year.
