The annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony happens on Friday, November 25th at Monument Square, at 5:00 pm., in downtown Portland. The festive event kicks-off the Holiday season for many in downtown Portland. It features Rick Charette and Santa Claus plus some free samples of eggnog. It looks like it could be a dampish lighting, so come prepared.
All the fun culminates with the ever popular Merry Madness on Thursday, December 8th – It runs from 4:00 pm – 10:00 pm. Shop ’til you drop! The festivities kick off at 4 – 6:30 pm at Portland House of Music. Get your Merry Madness wine glass, then shop downtown. Tickets may be purchased at merrymadness.evenbritecom.
