Old Port Fest Fun

I haven't been to the Old Port Festival in at least 10-15 years. I decided that since the weather was perfect, it was walking distance and my friend asked me to go, that I would brave the crowds and see what the fuss was about. Turns out it was a lot of fun. We heard a couple of really good bands. We found spots in both the sun and shade to hang out and relax. I got to make my first trip to Gelato Fiasco Portland.

Here is Jeanne enjoying a lobster roll:

Here I am about to enjoy my sorbetto:

This band Time Pilots was great.  They do 80's music and the lead singer was spot on with both Billy Idol and Simple Minds. 

I loved that the WCYY stage was just down the hill from Amigos.  I admit that I flashed back about 16 years as I listened to a cover of a Nirvana song as I stood outside Amigos on the cobblestones of Dana Street.

Here are a couple of random street shots:

All in all it was a perfectly enjoyable Sunday afternoon!


  1. I was going to go until I read in the paper they expected 30,000 people and that scared me off. You are lucky to live intown-it makes it so much easier to go.

  2. Now I'm homesick. NEED to make a trip back to Maine!
