Great Sardine and Maple Leaf Drop

Bank Square Eastport, ME 04631 United States + Google Map

Join us for the 15th annual New Year’s Eve Great Sardine and Maple Leaf Drop in Bank Square, downtown Eastport. From the third story of the Tides Institute & Museum of Art, a giant red maple leaf will be lowered to commemorate the Canadian new year at midnight, Atlantic time (11 pm ET), while the New Year’s Eve Brass Band will play a rousing “O Canada,” (singing along is encouraged). At midnight Eastern time, an 8-foot sardine will take the plunge, as the brass band plays “Auld Lang Syne.” For entertainment, the jazz duet Sanchez & Squibb will play at StudioWorks from 9 pm until just before midnight. Don’t forget to kiss the sardine for luck in the year ahead!
