Bob Duchesne’s Wild Maine: Eastport Pirates + Greenville Seaplanes [AUDIO]
Arrggh! This week, Wild Maine is at sea and in the air.
Part 1: We visit the 40th International Seaplane Fly-In in Greenville set for Sept. 5-8. More than 10,000 people are expected to attend.
Part 2: The Eastport Pirate Festival is coming up next weekend, but it really starts to today with the Lubec invasion! Thre’s a long history of scoundrels this far Down East!
Part 3: Do pirates race beds? They do in Eastport. Here’s the whole schedule.
Part 4: For Captain Crudbeard, pirating is not just a job, it’s a lifestyle. Plus, he has his own pirate ship! Crudbeard teaches us how to be a pirate just in time for the festival. Dressing the part is half the battle.
Part 5: How do pirates fight? In Eastport, the Maine Academy of Stage Combat makes sure everybody plays by the rules (as much as pirates can, that is.)
