The 36th Annual Old Port Festival was held yesterday under sunny skies, for the most part. If you came late you missed one of my favorite parts, the Shoestring Theater's larger than life puppets kicked- off the festivities parading down Exchange Street. If you like music, music, music, food, street performers, dogs, an American Idol finalist, Medieval fencing and fighting by the Society for Creative Anachronism, face painting and a 61 foot lobster roll then the streets of the Old Port was where you should have been Sunday. I was there for year 1 and can tell you that things have certainly been toned down a bit, but it's always a great way to welcome summer to the city!
