Each year, Visit Freeport presents one of Maine’s most popular holiday celebrations, Sparkle Celebration. The event kicks off in Freeport on Friday, December 6 at 6 pm with a Parade of Lights down Main Street and a countdown with Santa to bring our famous talking Christmas Tree to life! At the end of the countdown, the tree sparkles with light and children delight in chatting with our signature talking tree.

The fun continues all week with loads of free events and activities including visits with Santa, horse drawn carriage rides, free holiday movies, a Tuba Christmas Concert, a new Sparkle Market and more! Visitors will enjoy great events, dining, and shopping throughout the week.

In addition to ongoing festivities, the week is studded with unique events. Be sure to check back in November for a complete lineup of events, or follow us on Facebook and we’ll keep you updated about all the happenings in Freeport, Maine.
