And the 2010 Maine Sea Goddess is...Emily Benner
Newly crowned Maine Sea Goddess Emily Miles Benner walks with King Neptune on stage at Harbor Park during the Maine Lobster Festival Aug. 4.
One of the great highlights of the festival features eighteen young women from the local midcoast area vying for the Sea Goddess crown, scholarships, and prizes. The Maine Sea Goddess represents the Maine Lobster Festival, the lobster industry, and Rockland, Maine for the year with appearances at other events and associations throughout New England.
