DAMARISCOTTA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - The Pemaquid Oyster Festival is set for this Sunday, September 30th at Schooner Landing in Damariscotta.
The Director of the festival, Greg Latimer, stopped by this morning to tell us a little more about the festival that runs from noon until dusk or until the oysters run out.
Latimer tells us that during the festival as many as 15,000 thousand oysters are shucked and eaten.
There's also the Maine Champion Oyster Shucking Contest. The winner goes on to compete in the national contest.
