Folk Festival Frenzy

Thursday we motored another hour back to Rockland to make preparations to visit Bangor by car for the 2012 American Folk Festival. Here we also picked up a computer dropped off a couple weeks ago for conversion to XP (Computer Solutions 207-594-5556) so it can interface with our navigation system and ordered some more boat parts.

Friday we drove 65 miles to Bangor to join the other 100,000 music fans at the Folk Festival and wandered around the fairgrounds between the four stages simultaneously featuring various acts playing Blues to Bluegrass and Salsa to Swing). We especially liked the salsa band La Excelencia who performed in the Dance Pavillion. Many of our cruising friendswere also there, some taking their boats all the way up the Penobscot river to attend.

On Sunday afternoons the Landings Restaurant in Rockland has a Reggae band and we got everyone dancing (after a few beers).

With tropical weather in full swing down south we plan to remain in this area for a while.
