Belfast enjoys many visitors to its downtown, home to dining, shopping, parks, and walking trails that offer spots to enjoy the beauty of Belfast Bay. Have you seen Stuart Little in Belfast?
Stuart Little, the one and only two-inch-tall talking mouse boy, was created by beloved Maine author E.B. White in 1945.
On a glorious summer day, a local resident sat on a bench down by the water. “I saw the most incredible thing,” she said. “I was so excited to see Little Family with Stuart Little walking alongside them. I was immediately inspired to make entrances to accommodate Stuart’s small stature so that he could visit Belfast alone in his tiny birch bark canoe, ‘Summer Memories,’ anytime he wanted to.”
You might not get to see Stuart while you are here, but you will know if he is in town by heading down to the water and looking for his tiny birchbark canoe tied to his dock. Be kind to Stuart Little, he wants to enjoy the beauty and bounty of Belfast, just like you do. You never know where you might see him….
