Kennebunkport Maine is alive with Christmas Prelude festivities, and tonight is no exception! Now that the tree is lit with its signature lobster topper, town looks particularly beautiful. That said, this time of year is always especially cheerful, with Christmas garlands lining the downtown area and historic district, and historic homes (including our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast) are sparkling with their Christmas lights.
Today’s activities featured a multitude of craft fairs, shopping extravaganzas, art shows, and musical events. But for the eighth straight year, people have dropped everything to stand by the road in Dock Square for the Crazy Hat Parade. Crowds lined the street (akin to a miniature version of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade) while several hundred enthusiastic folks donned on the most ridiculous costumes and hats you could imagine. Laughter and cheering followed each group, and children were rewarded for their patience and cooperation with candy canes!
The incredible array of activities continue throughout tomorrow, but if you didn’t make it this weekend there is still next weekend for Prelude Round 2! And if you can’t find your schedule of events for Christmas Prelude 2013, you can visit the website for more information. And, of course, we have lots of schedules and reading materials at the Maine Stay Inn. But now it’s time to hit the sack, because there is so much more Christmas Prelude 2013 to enjoy tomorrow in Kennebunkport Maine!
