YARMOUTH, Maine — Greg Brady never ditched his responsibilities as the leader of the Brady kids, but the actor who played him is about to shuck some clams.

The 54th Annual Yarmouth Clam Festival is getting started Friday, and the guest of honor is Barry Williams, who’s best known for playing Greg Brady on ‘‘The Brady Bunch.’’ Williams will be in the event’s parade on Friday and available for autographs on Saturday.

The clam festival celebrates Maine’s most beloved bivalve and runs through Sunday. The festival draws thousands of people to the southern Maine town of Yarmouth, and includes lots of food, music, and merriment.

Saturday’s events include the Maine State Clam Shucking Contest. Williams is scheduled to be on hand during the contest. That is, of course, unless something suddenly came up.
