Christmas By The Sea: Camden Welcomes The Holidays

Fall: Santa Claus is coming to town and in Camden he’s coming by lobster boat. The town celebrates their Christmas kickoff with the arrival of Santa by unconventional means. Christmas By the Sea, Downeast style is celebrated the last weekend of the month. This weekend long celebration of the holiday season is a fun event for the whole family. The towns of Camden, Rockport and Lincolnville all come alive with shopping, musical entertainment, a parade, a community tree lighting ceremony and horse drawn wagon rides. In addition to the other events local residents open their homes to the public for a Holiday House Inn Tour. This is a fun way to check out some of the antique homes and the beautiful holiday decorations that make these places shine during the season. With so many holiday sales and dining specials visitors can’t help but enjoy themselves. Photos and children’s story hour with Santa is available and always a treat for the young ones. When you get there make sure you take a minute to wish upon a star…the star on Mt. Battie is lit that weekend for your viewing and wishing pleasure!
