It was definitely very low-key, unstated and there were no fireworks of any sort. The Visitor Centers had some small stickers and tattoos with the Centennial logo lying inconspicuously on the counter while the main center, at Hulls Cove, and the gift shop at “Jordan’s Pond” had some Centennial merchandise. I, as is my wont, spoke to a few people and they had no idea that they were visiting the Park on an auspicious day. Once I told them they were, as was to be expected, tickled. The locals knew but were not making a big deal about it. One motel in Bar Harbor updated their roadside notice board to wish the Park a happy 100th birthday. That was about it. It wasn’t a great day weatherwise. Though there wasn’t much rain it was overcast, gray and gloomy all day. But we still had a good day — since it is neigh impossible not to enjoy yourself while in Acadia.

So that was Friday, July 8, 2016 on “Mount Desert Island” — Acadia National Park
