This year’s theme is:

Back… to the Future  – A Red, White and Blue Tribute to Main Street, USA

Entries can reflect traditional 4th of July themes to celebrate the Red, White and Blue, so bring on the Stars & Stripes, Lady Liberty, Uncle Sam and all that conjures up life in America.  This year we choose to pay tribute to the old-fashioned Main Street of yesteryear and the home and hearth values of our forefathers. All across America, people yearn for what we enjoy every day right here along the coast of Maine – a “Picture Perfect Community” with what has become known as one of America’s Best Downtown Main StreetsAll your entry has to have is imagination, spirited participants and lots of noise to impress the cheering crowd!
