THE REENACTMENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR SUNDAY @ 4PM so that we have the very best weather possible for spectators. Did you know that this SUNDAY (August 19th) @4PM during the Blueberry Festival there is going to be something totally old school going on on the water off the causeway behind Helen's Restaurant? Around 4pm, there will be a reenactment of British redcoats with muskets in a hand-built wooden boat vs
local militia and Passamaquoddy re-enactors on the shore and rumor has it... a British redcoat is going into the water! Some direct descendants from the original 1777 Machias and Passamaquoddy crew will be on-hand. Get your 1777 on and come on by to see what will prove to be a very interesting few minutes!
And yes, there will be dry suits and safety boats involved. And unlike 1777, the event also will be filmed in one shot by a drone and well-placed video cameras so if you can't make it, look for the footage here once it gets put together. 😊
Edit: Sorry the original post said 1775. Fixed it, and changed the description a bit.
Featherbed Island House. I love to sit under the pergola and feel the gentle ocean breezes. Recent crazy heatwave aside, it's usually sunny and warm but not too hot for lunch on the deck. ... See MoreSee Less
