FREEPORT– Visitors seeking a town-wide holiday celebration in a Maine seaside village will find it at Freeport. Each year, Visit Freeport presents one of Maine’s most popular holiday celebrations, Sparkle Celebration. The free event kicks off in Freeport with a Parade of Lights down Main Street to wake up the famous Talking Christmas Tree. The fun continues all weekend with loads of free events and activities including visits with Santa, horse drawn carriage rides, holiday movies, a Tuba Christmas Concert and more.
Visitors will enjoy great events, activities and shopping throughout the weekend. Coinciding with Sparkle Weekend is L.L.Bean’s Northern Lights Celebration. Once the Talking Tree on Main Street is brought to life, children delight in asking the Tree questions and hearing the unique responses. Jump on to a horse drawn carriage for a tour of the village starting in front of the L.L.Bean Flagship Store on Main Street. The whole family will enjoy taking photos in front of whimsical backdrops at L.L.Bean.
In addition to ongoing events, the weekend is filled with highlights. Visit sparklecelebration.com for an updated schedule of events. Bring your list and find something for everyone – all while strolling through our charming Maine village.
