one of those events is the yarmouth clam festival. we had a blast last year and couldn't wait to attend this year as well. it's not so much about the clams as it is about just being outside and enjoying the summer and maybe enjoy some lime rickeys! to be honest i'm not exactly sure what it is, but i do know they taste great on a hot summer day.
summer is a sacred season in maine and the yarmouth clam festival seems to be one of the more sublime celebrations to attend.
