ROCKLAND — Maine’s largest festival celebrating the state’s signature seafood is winding down.

The Maine Lobster Festival in Rockland is coming to a close on Sunday with free admission and a full day of events including its lobster crate race, where competitors run across lobster crates that are floating in the water. Also on tap are a children’s codfish carry contest and a lobster-eating competition.

The festival comes to an end when the gates close at 6 p.m.

The festival, in its 65th year, draws about 100,000 visitors each year who put away more than 20,000 pounds of lobster.
