If you’ve never experienced the Kennebunkport Christmas Prelude (or even if you have), you really should consider giving yourself and your loved ones a seasonal treat by coming to the Kennebunks and joining us in all the holiday season warmth and fun!
The annual Christmas Prelude celebration kicks off with a tree-lighting ceremony, complete with fireworks, at Dock Square in Kennebunkport on December 4th at 5:30pm. Thereafter, nearly two-weeks of festivities follow, with far too many events and attractions to list here – that’s what the Christmas Prelude site is for!
One of the biggest attractions, though, are all the great shopping opportunities during Christmas Prelude. Of course, the Christmas season is about far more than just buying and giving but gift-giving does play an important role. With local shops, galleries, and special arts and crafts events in the holiday spirit, the Kennebunkport Christmas Prelude makes it a snap to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones. Some even find they can get all of their shopping done here!
Perhaps the next biggest attraction during Christmas Prelude is the beauty of the Kennebunks, themselves. Everywhere you look, the villages are dressed in their holiday best, exuding a thoroughly contagious festive atmosphere that would lift anyone’s spirits. The abundance of cheerful, seasonal music plays a big role in this, with street performers, carolers, and numerous scheduled performances filling the air throughout Christmas Prelude.
One of the better ways to soak up the Kennebunks’ holiday atmosphere is to take a Christmas Prelude Trolley or Walking tour. These delightful distractions provide a broad view of not just the seasonal festivities but also insight into the history, architecture, and culture of the Kennebunks. The Christmas Prelude Trolley Tour even goes through the woods – a delightful twist on the Christmas sleigh-rides of old!
Kennbunkport’s Christmas Prelude is a lovely way to celebrate the holidays and its’ timing allows you to attend without having to sacrifice time during the actual holiday – so what are you waiting for?
