It was another great day on the banks of the Damariscotta river as we broadcast live aboard the Miss Yankee Pride. It's a longstanding tradition in this coastal Maine town that each fall they celebrate giant pumpkins by decorating them, catapulting them and racing them around the river...
Buzz Pinkham is just a great guy and I love talking with him about Pumpkinfest in Damariscotta every year! From pumpkin drop from a 200 foot crane to the regatta with motorized gourds, this is a blast! Check out our chat with Buzz on the Moose Morning Show!
This morning (April 21) a vehicle crashed into the Rite Aid on Main St. in Damariscotta. The accident happened around 10:15 am and caused extensive damage to the building and the car. No one was injured.
I got to hang with some really nice people today in Damariscotta. Don Carrigan from channel 6 (who is from that part of the state) and Buzz Pinkham, the creator of the event. That's some good company by anyone's standards, mista!
