This weekend is one of my favorite holiday events, Sparkle Weekend in Freeport! There are so many wonderful free activities from December first through the third: a holiday movie marathon, visits with Santa, horse drawn carriage rides, a tuba Christmas concert, the Freeport USA Parade of Lights to wake up the famous Talking Christmas Tree and lots more. There will be festive rides to Freeport on the Amtrak Downeaster, a musical holiday light show with choreographed lights on the L.L. Bean campus and a very cool Crooked Playhouse village for the kids. Learn more about Sparkle Weekend here and go to L.L. Bean's website for information about their Northern Lights Celebration. Freeport is dolled up and pulling out all the stops this holiday season, don't miss it!
