CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL IN MAINE

Road trip! Round up your family and friends and head to Portland for a day of food, music, craft beer, and more at the Allagash Street Fair (June 24, 1-6 p.m.). Now in its third year, the family-friendly festival has developed into a community gathering where visitors savor food from local purveyors, listen to live music from two stages, participate in a pinewood derby, and — of course — sample beer from 11 breweries, including the Allagash Brewing Company, Battery Steele Brewing, The Lost Abbey, and Austin Street Brewery. Other attractions include an arcade with games, local artisans selling arts and crafts, a photo booth, and more. As a way of giving back to the community, one dollar from every beer purchased directly benefits the Allagash Wilderness Waterway Foundation. Admission restricted to 2,000 guests so advance booking is recommended. Tickets: For those older than 21, $20; Ages 12-20, $10; under age 12, free. www.allagash.com/street-fair-2017

Visitors can choose from several accommodation options including on board of one of 70 classic wooden boats (1920-1970); on land at The Lock Keeper’s Cottage, a fully-furnished microchalet; and, for more adventurous travelers, one of eight Park Canada’s oTENTik tents — a cross between a tent and a rustic cabin. Rates vary by season and accommodation type. $82-$225/night. www.villagedesecluses.com/home

Q. When is a beach blanket not a beach blanket? A. When it’s a swimming pool. Say, what? The new E Lite Beach Blanket Pool is two products in one. Kids can start their day at the beach sitting or playing on this circular, eco-friendly blanket. When ready for water play, simply dig a hole in the sand, flip the blanket over, and fill with water from a nearby ocean or lake by using the handy waterproof carry bag. The “pool” side of the blanket is also waterproof, so water stays in the hole and doesn’t seep into the sand. $34.99. www.maximenterprise.com/new-products/e-lite-beach-blanket-pool
