A message from the North Pole to the good people of Kringleville, Maine USA! Thanks to the welcoming folks in the booming city of Waterville, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be at the Kringleville cabin again this Christmas season. Last season was full of Christmas magic in the Claus Cabin at Castonguay Square.

Santa knows that you’ve been busy this year with new talents like cooking, and arts and crafts, and learning how to help clean the yard, the house and even the car, learning to play with others, play an instrument or play a sport and more. Mrs. Claus knows that you are all trying to mind your Ps & Qs and are trying your very best to be kind to others whether at home, at school, at dance, at karate, at gymnastics, at swimming, at soccer and so many more places that you are doing your best to be nice.

Santa and Mrs. Claus look forward to visiting with the Kringleville area residents, as well as so many who travel miles and miles to share stories with Santa and see Mrs. C, too. We love that you all continue to be part of the Kringleville story season after season and keep the tradition in such a wonderful city.

Year after year, Kringleville has more and more visitors line up to visit with Jolly Old Santa. Last season, visitor after visitor commented to Santa and Mrs. Claus that though the wait can be long, once you’re inside the cabin you truly feel the magic of Christmas making it well worth the wait. Hearing it is “Worth the Wait,” again and again makes Santa and Mrs. Claus feel like visitor’s time in the cabin is special for each individual. Mrs. C wants to remind all visitors of all ages, please dress appropriately for the weather. While waiting in line, you should have warm footwear, a warm hat, mittens and, of course, a warm jacket. Always prepare for the unexpected and bring an umbrella, too.

Kringleville continues with the support of The Children’s Discovery Museum led by Executive Director Amarinda Keys. Santa’s elves are already hard at work in the North Pole making toys for all the good little boys and girls. Thanks to the generosity of Central Maine Photography, Elves Cinnamon and Cinnamon Stick will be at the cabin again this season to offer photos of visitors with Santa. Central Maine Photography is a proud annual supporter of Kringleville. Thank you again to last season’s supporters; The Children’s Discovery Museum, Central Maine Motors Auto Group, Colby, Selah Tea Café, GHM Insurance, Portland Pie Company, Technology Solutions of Maine, Kennebec Behavioral Health, Marden’s, the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce, the Bankery and others who shared the Christmas spirit with Christmas caroling, hot chocolate and more.

All of us at the North Pole, appreciate the generosity of Cen­tral Maine Motors Auto Group being Kringle­ville’s major sponsor again this season! If you or your business would like to contri­bute to the success of this timeless Waterville tradition, please contact Ama­rinda Keys at The Child­ren’s Discovery Museum at (207) 622-2209 or email to ask how you too can be a part of the magic of Christmas at Kringleville.

Kringleville is a proud supporter of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Again this season, proceeds from Santa and Mrs. C’s hand-painted annual Kringleville collectable ornaments will help children in need.

The parade of lights is always scheduled for the Friday after Thanksgiving and is a jolly good time for Santa when he arrives to Kringleville from the North Pole.

Santa wants everyone to keep in mind that Christmas isn’t something you should have in your heart only once a year. The spirit of Christmas should live in your heart year-round. So, take Santa’s advice and be good to your brothers and sisters, your friends and neighbors, and all who you are with until Santa sees you again…That means mom and dad, too! Remember, he knows if you’ve been bad or good, which makes a difference for his naughty or nice list. So, be good listeners and be kind to one another always. Santa and Mrs. Claus look forward to seeing you all soon when they arrive for the 2019 Parade of Lights.
