Spring in OOB


The goal of this project is to document the change of season in a resort community.  Old Orchard Beach, a small town on the coast of Southern Maine, is also known as the Canadian Riviera.  With a year round population of around 8,000, it is the epitome of Small Town, USA for eight months out of the year.  However, in season, it becomes the most populace town in the state.  Through the four month season the average daily population nears 75,000 and peaks on July 4th with nearly 250,000 people in just 7.5 square miles.  Most who visit OOB see the resort aspect only.  I hope to show how the rest of the year looks, and how this small town comes in to bloom.
