Winter Wonderland

Join us in Boothbay Harbor this winter for unforgetable festivities!

Experience the brilliance of New England’s biggest and brightest light display at Gardens Aglow! With over 650,000 lights, witness the transformation of Maine’s spectacular Botanical Gardens into an extravaganza of festive lights in a dramatic display of brilliant color. This year, they will be taking the dramatic display to new heights, incorporating—for the first time—a magnificent sculpture exhibit, Unearthed, by artist Steve Tobin.

Join the region as they celebrate the season in grand, old-fashioned holiday style with the 34th Annual Harbor Lights Festival on Dec 7th. The Festival offers a variety of activities for young and old and will surely put you in the holiday spirit! Meet Mr. and Mrs. Clause who arrive via boat, take a horse-drawn wagon ride around the harbor, sing Christmas Carols, watch the lighted boat parade, and gather up lots of cheerful holiday merriment.
