BAR HARBOR — The Bar Harbor Racetival will take place at the Atlantic Brewing Company in Town Hill on Sunday, Oct. 12, the day following the Acadia Oktoberfest in Southwest Harbor.
The Racetival has taken place for many years under various names and is traditionally made up of several components including a fun war canoe race at nearby Long Pond. The canoe component of the event is organized in conjunction with Branch Pond Paddlers, a local group that helps children become involved in paddling.
After the war canoe race, attendees can return to Atlantic Brewing for a barbeque competition and belt sander race with a disco theme.
The events raise money for the Muir Fund for Local Cancer Support.
