Have a merry old time in the midcoast at the Harbor Lights Festival from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, in Boothbay Harbor. The lighted boat parade is one of many shining stars of the celebration, and Mr. and Mrs. Claus will arrive on a boat along with their elf, moose and lobster friends before repairing to the Boothbay Harbor Memorial Library for photo ops. Take a horse-drawn carriage ride around the harbor and sing Christmas carols. Hit the Festival of Trees at the Boothbay Opera House, bring the kids to story time at Sherman’s Bookstore, visit the craft show at the Boothbay Fire Station, see the Christmas tree get lit at the Boothbay Memorial Lawn, check out the live nativity at Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church and partake in several other nautically-themed holiday activities as this festival casts a wide net of holiday fun.
