The holidays are approaching at a rapid pace. Halloween is right around the corner, which means Thanksgiving is only a mere few weeks later, and then... And then it's time for the BIG man to climb down chimneys and deliver toys to all the good girls and boys.

According to Centralmaine.com, there are some changes to the city of Waterville's holiday events. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing pandemic and health and safety, Waterville has canceled its annual Parade of Light. However, there will still be events happing, and those will get kicked off on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, with Mr. and Mrs. Clause arriving via sleigh to Castonguay Square where they will light the town Christmas Tree.

Last year as a way to keep everyone as safe a possible while keeping everyone distant, the Town came up with the idea to bring everyone together to "Light up the Town," giving residents a multi-map tour of gorgeous Christmas lights.

Thinking the world would be back to normal, the Town had no intention of bringing it back, but because of last year's success, they have decided to bring Light up the Town back for 2021. Business and town residents are encouraged to decorate their homes, yards, cars, driveways, and even storefronts.
