The Maine Lobster Festival is an annual event that takes place in Rockland, Maine, typically in late July or early August. The festival is a celebration of the state’s lobster industry, which is a significant part of the local economy and a source of pride for many people.

The festival features a variety of events and activities, including a parade, live music, arts and crafts vendors, a carnival, and of course, plenty of opportunities to sample fresh Maine lobster. One of the main events of the festival is the lobster cook-off, in which professional chefs compete to create the most delicious lobster dish.

As expected, Maine Lobster Festival attracts many visitors, majority of whom are out of town tourists. Admittedly, hotel rooms during this time are in high demand, surging lodging rates quickly. Therefore, it is is highly recommended to reserve hotel rooms early on to lock in current, more reasonable, rates.

The festival also includes a sea goddess coronation, in which a local high school student is chosen to represent the festival as the “queen” or “goddess” of the sea. The coronation is a highlight of the festival and features a pageant-style competition in which the contestants showcase their talents and answer questions from the judges.

Overall, the Maine Lobster Festival is a fun and festive event that offers visitors a chance to experience the unique culture and cuisine of Maine. Whether you’re a lobster lover or just looking for a fun summer activity, the festival is definitely worth checking out.

United States background and overview
Britain's American colonies broke with the mother country in 1776 and were recognized as the new nation of the United States of America following the Treaty of Paris in 1783. During the 19th and 20th centuries, 37 new states were added to the original 13 as the nation expanded across the North American continent and acquired a number of overseas possessions. The two most traumatic experiences in the nation's history were the Civil War (1861-65), in which a northern Union of states defeated a secessionist Confederacy of 11 southern slave states, and the Great Depression of the 1930s, an economic downturn during which about a quarter of the labor force lost its jobs. Buoyed by victories in World Wars I and II and the end of the Cold War in 1991, the US remains the world's most powerful nation state. Since the end of World War II, the economy has achieved relatively steady growth, low unemployment and inflation, and rapid advances in technology.
