Machias Blueberry Festival 

It’ll be blueberries all the time this weekend in eastern Maine as Machias hosts its 33rd annual Wild Blueberry Festival.

The festival got under way on Friday and continues through tomorrow with blueberry pancake breakfasts, blueberry farm tours, a blueberry cooking competition and a blueberry eating contest.

The festival also has road races, crafts booths, food, music and art exhibits. More than 20,000 people attended last year’s event.

Eastern Maine is the heart of blueberry country in Maine, the nation’s leading wild blueberry producer.
