Seaplane Fly In
The Seaplane Fly In is an annual event the first weekend after Labor Day in Greenville, Maine. It is the largest event in the Moosehead Lake Region attracting pilots, spectators, New England crafters, and food vendors. The 2016 Seaplane Fly In will be celebrating 43 years for this event. We have attended sixteen Seaplane Fly In Maine events here in Greenville, Maine. A few must do and see things that we look forward to every year. We have no affiliation to anyone mentioned here. Only desire is to give Greenville, Maine visitor’s to the Seaplane Fly In 2016 a local insider’s fly in travel tips. New this year is a 5K run-walk that starts at 8am on 9/10/16.
Seaplane Fly In Best Food Stops
Our first stop is typically to find Jan’s Mini Donuts. Get coffee and donuts here at the vendor cart typically set up near the airplane hanger. Then I like to go look for Jan’s Heavenly Pickles. She makes the best Dilly Beans. Her pickles are great too. Next it is off to look for Sawyer’s Maple Syrup. Great rubs and the Maple Syrup products are reasonably priced. Then go look for Worcester’s Wild Blueberry Products. They make fresh blueberry pies. Buy a whole pie. There are many other food vendors selling fudge, baked goods and food carts.
Seaplane Fly In Favorite Craft Stops
I visit this crafter first to get the best selection. Sweaters by Beth Made in Maine. I have many and love them all. Next look at jewelry. There are some very nice pieces from precious Maine stones. Love the Maine watermelon tourmaline. After jewelry, it is off to appreciate the pottery, photographers, painters, and woodworking. Soaps and lotions a must. My favorite is Old Tyme Soap Shop Premium Lotion- Lemon grass scented lotion is great for keeping bugs at bay. Then it is off to check out the Wood Carver, Joe Bolf, just past the Town Office on Midden Street.
