CAMDEN, Maine (AP) — More than a dozen windjammers are headed to Camden Harbor.

The 25th annual Camden Windjammer Festival kicks off Friday with the arrival of more than a dozen windjammers and an evening capped by fireworks on the waterfront.

Organizers say the event celebrates Camden’s maritime heritage, including clipper ships and coastal schooners built in the harbor.

It’s billed as the largest gathering of windjammers in the northeast.

The event continues through Saturday with a fish relay, lobster crate race, fish head relay, pirates and a dance party.
