This holiday season, the Children’s Discovery Museum hosted a city-wide light celebration! Light displays moved outside of just Main Street this year, as businesses and individuals decorated their properties with lights to celebrate the holidays. The registered parties were then compiled into a city-wide map available for members of the community so they can drive by and admire the decorations!

The event kicked off on Friday, November 27, 2020, and Santa made a loop around to visit many of the properties, waving to the participants as he went by. The properties were also visited by a panel of judges who carefully selected the winner: Chris Griswold’s World, at 12 Woodlawn Drive, in Winslow. Runners up include A Whale of a Holiday, at 585 Clinton Ave., in Winslow, A Merry FrankLin Christmas, at 39 Franklin St., in Waterville, 75% off, at 45 Roosevelt Ave., in Waterville, Frosty’s Corner, at 310 Cemetery Street, in Vassalboro, and Forest of Trees, at 451 Cushman Rd., in Winslow.
