The first annual Shipyard Brewing Summer Festival was held this past weekend on the Maine State Pier. Shipyard, whose brewery is located nearby on Newbury Street, is celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. As you can see from the photo below, it looks like the music piece of the event on Saturday was a success. 5k and half marathon races were also held as part of the event on Sunday, with proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland and Cancer Community Center.

I was happy to be able to capture some of the stars in the sky since the scene was much darker in person. I can only imagine how brilliant this would have looked if a talented astrophotographer was able to shoot this scene.
