If you want to see a “bright light” amongst all the Christmas displays and decorations in New England, be sure to check the free 2017 Lighting of the Nubble event on Sat., Nov. 25, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.,  at Nubble Lighthouse in Cape Neddick, Maine.

Editor’s note: If you don’t have a chance to attend the Nubble Lighthouse Christmas lighting display, don’t worry — the lights stay on until Jan. 1, 2018.

This famous, beautiful lighthouse along the rocky coast of southern Maine looks absolutely fabulous all dressed up in Christmas lights that frame the main building as well as outbuildings. We were so awed the first time we visited Nubble Lighthouse during the Christmas season that we just parked and stayed much longer than planned. I mean, how many times do you have the chance to see your favorite lighthouse fully immersed in the Christmas spirit? It’s an awesome sight!

The Nubble Lighthouse web site state that festivities will begin with the York High School Chamber Singers while Santa will be arriving on a York Beach Fire Department  ladder truck at 6:00 p.m. Right after that, the  lights go on!

Complimentary cookies and hot chocolate will be available for all and shuttles will be running from Ellis Park at Short Sands Beach from 3:30 p.m. to 7:00 pm., according to the Nubble Lighthouse web site.

For more information on this wonderful event, check the Nubble Lighthouse web site calendar section.

Nubble Lighthouse is located at Sohier Park in Cape Neddick, Maine, and admission is free!.
