Christmas Prelude’s Hat Parade
It’s Friday the 13th, which only means… it’s the last weekend of Christmas Prelude in Kennebunkport! Oh, were you thinking this was an unlucky day? Well, lucky for you, today is the day where the second weekend of Christmas Prelude will start with a bang–literally!
While the 2nd weekend of Christmas Prelude doesn’t draw as much of a crowd as the 1st, many consider the last weekend is better with the firework display. At 5:30pm tonight, the Christmas Tree will once again be lit Dock Square where an exciting fireworks display will follow shortly after. The best place to see the fireworks is from the Lanigan Bridge connecting to Dock Square. You can also visit Federal Jacks where you can pay a $10 admission to watch the fireworks from the deck while sipping on some hot cider or cocoa with the buffet display. You might need a place to stop for dinner if you’re planning on attending this event for a while.
Later tonight, you can also stop by Alisson’s Restaurant for karaoke and a sing-a-long going until midnight, or grab a drink and tune in for some live music entertainment at Federal Jacks. From morning until midnight, Christmas Prelude will be bustling with events, holiday shoppers, carolers and festivities. Many travel from all over to attend this spirited event for a weekend getaway. It’s no wonder Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude has been named the 2nd Christmas Town in the US by HGTV.
