Food Tent at the Lobster Festival in Rockland, Maine USA

The Maine Lobster Festival takes place every year in Rockland, Maine at the beginning of August as it has for over 60 years. The main attraction is the food tent where traditional single, double and triple steamed lobster dinners are served up in Maine Style: with a biscuit, corn on the cob and coleslaw. In 2010, over 20,000 pounds of lobster was cooked and served to patrons at the food tent. The festival offers other dinners including Maine shrimp and mussels while festival vendors will sell you a great variety of ethnic and American foods -and carnival type snacks.

Other events at the festival include a parade, races, arts and crafts, a sea goddess coronation, a cooking contest, entertainment and carnival rides.

In 2009, lobster represented a $228 million industry for Maine with 78 million pounds harvested. Both Rockland, Maine, USA and Shediac, New Brunswick, Canada claim to be the "Lobster Capital of the World".

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
