Boothbay Harbor is not without its winter festivities! Join the region as we celebrate the season in grand, old-fashioned holiday style with the 34th Annual Harbor Lights Festival. 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. Harbor Lights is just one event in the much larger Boothbay Lights lineup this year. This is an opportunity to experience the best of Boothbay, in the winter season. You’ll have the chance to do some holiday shopping, dine at our delicious restaurants, enjoy festival events and so much more!
