A national travel group says a summer tradition in Maine is also one of the best events in the country.

The American Bus Association named the Maine Lobster Festival in Rockland as one of the Top 100 Events in North America for 2014.

It will be highlighted this month in a special magazine put out by the A-B-A, which is made up of bus and tour operators.

The lobster festival celebrated its 66th year in August.

It draws thousands of people from all over the country.

During the five day event, festival goers consume more than 20,000 pounds of lobster meat.
