Bucksport Bay Festival 

There was a celebration in Bucksport Saturday.The 13th annual Bucksport Bay Festival continued Saturday with lots of events for the entire family.A parade, 5K race with more than 180 runners, music, pie bake-off contest, and much more kept folks busy and entertained.More than 70 vendors lined the waterfront selling their goods.It’s an event that organizers say brings the community together.”It’s just good for families and the kids, we try to emphasize the kids a little bit. It’s also good for all of the vendors who come in. It helps them out financially,” said Jim Zeman, festival coordinator.Fireworks will be set off at 9 o’clock Saturday night over the Penobscot River.The festival officially comes to a close Sunday night at 7 with an encore performance by the Riverbend Players.
