Press release

2019 Boothbay Lights season is here

Wed, 11/13/2019 - 7:00am

It’s been exciting to be out and about this past week around the peninsula as people of all backgrounds: private homes, businesses, employees and volunteers — all hanging their lights to prepare for the 2019 season of Boothbay Lights and Gardens Aglow. We are excited to introduce our 2019 sponsors for Boothbay Lights: A huge thank you goes out to our first ever Community Lead Sponsor, The First National Bank.

We would also like to thank our two Boothbay Lights Partners: Tindal & Callahan Real Estate and Knickerbocker Group. Both have been supporters of Boothbay Lights for several years and we appreciate their continued support of the Boothbay region as year-round businesses with deep roots in the community. A huge thank you to all of our sponsors for the 2019 season.

We also would like to thank you, the community: business members, residents, volunteers—for all your efforts each year as we welcome thousands of visitors to the region to view the lights that add to the sparkle and charm of our peninsula. We also have to thank the tireless effort of the Public Works Departments of both Boothbay and Boothbay Harbor as they brave the elements to hang lights throughout the town, let alone keeping us safe throughout the winter season. We also would like to take a moment to recognize the members of the Boothbay and Boothbay Harbor municipalities who help make all this possible.
