The Mesmerizing Christmas Display In Maine With Over 650,000 Glittering Lights

There are certain things Mainers look forward to all year. The first beach day, which is admittedly might be later than the ones that other people experience, is one. Another is the first snow. And, perhaps the most exciting thing we wait for each year is the first day of this incredible light display in Boothbay Harbor!
