Punkinfiddle features old-time games, traditional arts, lively music, hands-on activities, tasty food, farm animals, and lots of smiles in a historic seaside setting.

Kids can go on an estuary theme scavenger hunt, sport face-paint sea creatures, construct fish crowns, make corn-husk dolls, and join a nature walk to the salt marsh.

Early birds can take part in a cleanup of Laudholm Beach beginning at 9 am and return to the festival in time for a Pumpkin Parade featuring special guests.

More than twenty skilled artisans will demonstrate spinning and weaving, violin and folk instrument making, broom making, stonemasonry, beekeeping, and other Maine traditions at Punkinfiddle.
