Spring on Campobello Island is just around the corner and I know that everyone (including myself) is looking forward to another wonderful summer.
There are many wonderful events planned for Campobello Island summer 2014.
For more information about visiting Campobello Island you can check:

Did you know that Campobello Island is part of the two-nation vacation area promotion?
Lubec Maine is just across the bridge and you could easily visit both in one day.
Come for a visit...but stay for awhile...there's so much to see and do or just relax.
Here are a few but certainly not all of the events for Summer 2014 for Campobello and the surrounding area.
