LISBON FALLS — The sixth annual Very Merry Main Street will take place from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 6.
Free activities will include horse-drawn carriage rides, musical performances and the chance to visit Santa.
“Lisbon Falls is the perfect place to experience an authentic small town holiday celebration. As a family friendly destination, we offer activities that will bring smiles to children of all ages,” said Ross Cunningham, president of Positive Change Lisbon, the coordinator of the event.
The evening begins at 4:30 at the MTM Center, 18 School St., where carolers from Lisbon Falls Baptist Church will lead the singing as Santa lights the town’s Christmas tree at MTM park. After the lighting, everyone is invited to follow Santa in a “Caroling Procession” down Main Street to Route 196.
From 5 to 7 p.m., over 15 businesses in Lisbon Falls will open their doors and welcome visitors to their stores, with many providing snacks and drinks and activities. Stop by the Positive Change Lisbon table outside Mike’s Flooring on Main Street to receive a card to be stamped by local businesses. Return the stamped cards to be entered into a contest to win a gift basket.
Children will be able to meet Santa for free after he arrives at the “North Pole Annex” in the Masonic Hall on Route 196. Parents can take photos of their kid’s visit.
All visitors are invited to line up outside Mike’s Flooring for free horse-drawn carriage rides.
During the evening, singers Rick Graham, Malinda Liberty and Frank Coffin will be performing at Tangles Hair Salon and the Lewiston trio known as Present Company will perform holiday favorites at Drapeau’s Costumes on Main Street.
