Make a Gingerbread House with a nautical theme, and bring it to the Penobscot Marine Museum’s Main Street Gallery on November 30th for a holiday kick-off party! Or simply come to the Museum’s Maine Street Gallery for the party and to admire the display of Gingerbread Lighthouses. There will be Gingerbread Lighthouses, boat barns and more, made by individuals (such as you!) as well as by local restaurants. The Chocolate Drop Shoppe from Belfast will be on hand with holiday candies.

The Gingerbread Lighthouses will be on display one day only, in the Museum’s Main Street Gallery and Store.

For more information call Lin Calista, Penobscot Marine Museum Framer, at 548-0334.

The Chocolate Drop Shoppe from Belfast has a Gingerbread House competition. If you’d like to access their patterns and join their competition, there will be a new category for nautical entries! Their $5 fee goes to the Belfast Rotary 100 Fund, which provides holiday gifts for struggling families in Waldo County.

Or you can bring your Gingerbread Lighthouse to The Inn at French’s Point for the Stockton Springs Holiday Gala on Sunday, December 2nd.

Also on November 30th is the Searsport Holiday Tree Lighting on the Crescent and their annual holiday concert. Call the Searsport Town Office at 548-6372 for more information.
