A client friend had informed his business associates that he expected to have a lobster dinner at his favorite place to eat. Well they did not just let it bounce off them, they took up the challenge. Making an invitational poster, candy bars with the clients face on them and of course buying gifts from the gift shop to remember the occasion. They all ordered large lobsters. Mike the client had a 2 lb. baked stuffed lobster with a note written on the claw saying ” Thanks Mike” with the names of his friend written on the other claw. A good time was had by all. Enjoy the video below of the fun event.

July 4th Fireworks displays in the state of Maine are great fun for the entire family. The display of brilliant colors and explosions are a celebration of our independence as a nation. In  an attempt to keep the celebration going the town of Harpswell has its fireworks display on the 5th of July at 10 pm. A tradition for the town for nearly 30 years. The fireworks are set off on the point at Cook’s Lobster House. If you are near Portland, Lewiston, Brunswick or Bath, make your way down the coast. You can watch the display from many locations in Harpswell. Bring your blanket and sit on the lawn, beach or the world-famous Cribstone Bridge and experience the awesome sounds of explosions and the awesome display of lights. You can stroll along the beach and collect seashells or sea-glass while you wait for the sky to be lit up. Many Mariners come and anchor in the harbor to be part of this beautiful tradition in Harpswell.

Curt Parent the owner of the land the fireworks are set off from says “Cook’s Lobster House has sponsored and hosted the entire event for many years as a way of saying thank you to the locals and many visitors for supporting us”.
