ROCKLAND (AP) -- Lobster lovers are getting out their bibs for the state's largest festival dedicated to Maine's signature seafood.
The 66th annual Maine Lobster Festival kicks off at noon Wednesday in Rockland with five days of festivities in celebration of the lobster.
The festival each year draws about 100,000 visitors who put away more than 20,000 pounds of lobster.
Besides lobster, the festival features a sea goddess coronation, a parade, entertainment, tours of a U.S. Navy ship, cooking contests, carnival rides and a lobster crate race where contestants run across lobster crates floating in the water.
