Gearing Up for Tourist Season 

Less than a week to go before the unofficial start of the summer tourist season in Maine.

Memorial Day weekend usually begins the wave of summer visitors to places like Bar Harbor.

Merchants there spent this weekend gearing up for the season.

They’re hoping the increased number of cruise ships headed to town this season will mean big business.

They’re also hopeful that the current high gas prices won’t keep people from driving to the coast.
