The Old Port Fest is said to be the kickoff to summer, and at 91 degrees it certainly felt like it. The 44th annual festival took over downtown Portland and the Old Port for all of Sunday afternoon with four music and entertainment stages, lots of food and shopping, and the Casco Bay Eye Ferris Wheel. Lots of Mainers are sporting sunburns!
