AUGUSTA, Maine — Gov. Paul LePage has signed a proclamation in honor of the 50th annual Windjammer Days Festival in Boothbay Harbor.

The festival is an annual celebration of the region’s rich maritime history. It will be held from June 24 through June 27.

Besides the historic windjammers, the festival features an antique boat parade, a street parade, fireworks over the harbor, concerts, arts and crafts, food and more.

In his proclamation, LePage says the festival has brought Mainers and tourists alike to marvel at Maine’s windjammer fleet and learn about the state’s maritime culture.
