Christmas Prelude in Kennebunkport
Our quaint little village is adorned with Christmas decorations and reminds one of what a true Charles Dickens Christmas must be like.
There are several "must see" events that take place during this festive time. In fact, there are so many such events, it's likely you will not have time to see them all. That's why we have many guests that have returned for this magical event for 10 years and more.
The one event that everyone should attend (every year) is the tree lighting. Beginning at 5:30 pm on Friday, December 1, you can join in, or just listen to, the Kennebunk High School Chamber singers. This is an experience that will certainly get you into the real Christmas spirit. Let's hope for cold weather and maybe a few snowflakes. Don't worry, the spirit of the event will keep you warm (but, just in case, bring a warm coat, mittens, a scarf and hat anyway).
One other must see event (especially if you have children with you) is Santa arriving by lobster boat and, of course, he is escorted by lobster elves. How else would Santa get to Kennebunkport. After all, his reindeer only fly on Christmas eve.
We still have a couple of rooms open for the first weekend of Prelude. Give the Maine Stay Inn a call and we would be glad to describe these luxurious rooms to you.
You will reminisce about this memorable event for many years to come.
