The Yarmouth Clam Festival Is This Weekend, Details and Road Closures
According to WGME, the Yarmouth Clam Festival is about more than clams. There are about thirty non-profit groups that take part and make this community event so special. This year fans will be set up to bring a breeze to volunteers stationed at the fryers!
Whether you prefer crumbed or battered, there will be plenty of food to make you happy and road races to help you work off those fried food calories. There will be an art show, crafts, kids activities and more.
Admission to the festival is free.
