Northern Lights Celebration at L.L.Bean

This Friday kicks off what has become one of Maine’s most festive events — the Northern Lights Celebration at L.L.Bean.  A forest of twinkling lights at the Freeport campus provides the perfect backdrop for photos, and if that weren’t enough, Santa and his reindeer make a cheery red barn their home on the weekends. When it gets too frosty outdoors, visitors can grab a complimentary hot chocolate and warm up in a yurt that’s decorated for the holidays.  With this annual event, L.L.Bean has created a little bit of magic in the heart of Freeport.



Need a quick picture for holiday cards? This is the place to get it done.

Our kids are growing up fast, but we’re so glad they’re game to revisit this celebration each year!
