Can’t-miss spring events: 2018 Edition

Written by: Aimsel Ponti

Well, this winter certainly went out like a lion, and it’s not done with us yet. But the calendar tells us that spring has indeed arrived and with it, a renewed sense of hope that the snowbanks will melt, the birds will chirp, the baby seagulls will be born and, before too long, summer in Maine will be within reach. To help usher out the last dregs of winter and set our sights on summer, we’ve rounded up a bouquet of what we consider to be quintessential spring events. From the Maine Flower Show to Record Store Day, assorted last hurrahs at ski resorts and the Kennebunkport Festival, this spring has no shortage of indoor and outdoor activities to put, well, a spring in your step. Hang in there, friends; shovels will be moved to the back of the garage and sweaters to the back of the closet soon. We promise! Until then, peruse this list and start marking up your calendar.
