COLUMBIA FALLS, Maine (AP) - Move over wine and roses, it’s time for smelt and blueberries.

The annual Downeast Salmon Federation smelt fry is coming to Columbia Falls on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event began more than 15 years ago as a community potluck centered on the smelt harvest and has grown into an event that attracts hundreds of people.

The festival still celebrates the fried smelt, which is the signature food item of the day. Other dishes include smoked mackerel, venison stew and blueberry desserts.

The event takes over tiny Columbia Falls for the day.
