The One Maine Town That Transforms Into A Christmas Wonderland Each Year

Towns across Maine are lighting up with the magic of the holidays. As December gets closer and the weeks leading to Christmas become more sparkly, we can expect to see small town tree lightings, delighting kids and adults throughout the state. From parades to hot chocolate to horse drawn carriage rides, this might just be the best time of the year. To make it extra special, check out the Sparkle Celebration in Freeport.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
