Memorial Day Parades in Kennebunk Kennebunkport

And yes, President […]

Kennebunkport’s Launch – a Floating Success!

Launch – a Maritime Festival is among the best fests in Maine, a celebration along the Kennebunk River. Its a wave of fun – five days of fishing, a boat parade, lobster bakes, fun runs of pirates and mermaids on the beach, Chef Competitions and much more.

1st Lady Barbara Bush’s favorite spots in Kennebunkport

Everyone who has lived in Kennebunkport for several years has a Barbara Bush story to tell, many have a photo to post from an encounter with Mrs. Bush.
