Harbor Lights Festival

December 7


With a distinctly nautical flavor, this festival is fun for the entire family and will help to get everyone in the holiday spirit. Festival highlights include Santa and Mrs. Claus and a whole cast of characters including elves, moose, lobsters and more arriving in grand style…by boat, of course! There are horse drawn carriage rides, the festival of trees, a craft show, story time, tree lighting, and caroling. The evening concludes with the lighted boat parade, where local captains deck their hulls with twinkling lights for a festive spin around the Harbor. A warm sight on a chilly December night!
