Help Bar Harbor ring in the holidays at this community celebration!
The evening begins at 4:30pm on the Village Green in downtown Bar Harbor with carolers and hot cocoa. Santa Claus is welcomed to the Village Green with a rendition of "Here Comes Santa Claus" sung by Judy Pancoast, Emmy nominee and host of The Wave at Work on 93-7, at 5pm.
From there, follow Santa and the carolers down to the MDI YMCA for family activities and crafts and your chance to visit with Santa, from 5:30-7:00pm. Activities and crafts provided by the MDI YMCA and Summer Festival of the Arts.
The Midnight Madness Sale begins at 8:00pm. Make a night of it with dinner at one of Bar Harbor's many restaurants before shopping the generous discounts and sales from participating businesses.
And don't forget to bring your receipts down to the Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center on the corner of Main and Cottage Streets to enter to win the midnight raffle drawing. Every receipt from a participating location will be good for one entry into the drawing for 2 round-trip tickets from Bar Harbor to Boston on Cape Air. The more you shop the better chances you'll have to win!
