I love holiday lights, and I’m guessing most of you do too.
Gardens Aglow is in its fifth year and is expecting well over 100,000 people to visit during its six week display.
650,000 LED lights on 43 miles of cord will definitely draw a crowd. Tickets are required and attendance is capped each night to keep things flowing smoothly.
Boothbay is a pretty straight shot about two hours north along the coast from where I live. The town of Boothbay got into the season as well by having plenty of lights and also some of the most beautiful wreaths, swags, and window box greenery displays I’ve ever seen.
We were extremely lucky that it didn’t snow and there was no wind, but it was 19°F. It was cold, and I had so many layers of clothing on I could hardly move.
It was a spectacular display, and my iPhone photos definitely don’t do it justice.
On a Thursday in December, it is pretty quiet in a tourist town like Boothbay Harbor. Matter of fact, except for the people going to the see the light show, you could say it is was deserted. On the plus side, that makes for easy traffic flow, cost effective rooms, and no waiting at their pubs or restaurants.
As we approach Christmas, I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season full of light, joy and peace. 🎄
