Party time! N.B. village sends off lobster boats in style

The sky above Alma, N.B. was lit up with fireworks early Friday morning. Hundreds of people gathered on the wharf at 1:00 a.m. to wish lobster fishermen a safe voyage and to send them off in style. Around a dozen boats left filled with traps and men heading to sea as a bagpiper played during the impressive fireworks display. Terry Rossiter has been a lobster fisherman since 1979. “We’ll start tonight and they’ll [fishermen] put at least 24 hours in before they go to sleep, maybe 36. It’s a lot of time, a lot of hard work,” said Rossiter. The fleet launch began around 11:30 p.m. Thursday with live music, lobster rolls, and of course Alma’s world-famous sticky buns.
