As the Holiday season got into full swing in downtown Freeport, our WOW kids got to take part in a time honored Maine tradition as they became engulfed in the famous
** Sparkle Celebration Weekend! **
Our team of riders, jugglers and faithful volunteers assembled to make their way down Main Street in the annual Parade of Lights, kicking off Sparkle Weekend. As the clock hit 6pm, Freeport police closed off Main Street to provide safety for a spectacular parade to begin! The enormous crowd grew even larger in size and excitement as we got closer to the center of town. A light snow blew through the air, setting the tone for the upcoming season.
Approaching the beautifully decorated front facade of L.L. Bean’s retail store, the glare from over 750 decorated gleaming balsam fir trees surrounding Discovery Park was mesmerizing! The sweet pine scent filled the crisp cool air around us as we passed by storefront scenes reminiscent of years past.
* A special time to be remembered by all! *
