BOOTHBAY HARBOR, Maine (AP) - The first tall ship festival of the summer in Maine features a parade of ships and fireworks.

Seven windjammers are participating in a Parade of Sail Wednesday evening during Boothbay Harbor’s Windjammer Days festival. Besides the windjammers, the festival features a tug-a-war contest across the harbor, a lobster-eating contest, an oyster-shucking contest and other events before it wraps up this weekend.

Another tall ship event is set for next month in Portland Harbor. That event will feature the Coast Guard training barque Eagle along with vessels from as far away Spain.
