A new Maine tradition, the Camp Sunshine Watermelon Festival plans to transform the streets of Freeport and L.L.Bean Campus into watermelon central! Join us as we bring hundreds of watermelons to Freeport.


We have quite the schedule of activities and family fun planned - including live music, children's activities, and all sorts of watermelon treats.
