Come explore the warmth of Maine’s most charming downtown, full of maritime history, walkable streets, unique shops and boutiques and a diverse festival that will help brighten up the darkest season.
FRIDAY FEBRUARY 25, 2022
Meet as a community at 6:00pm in front of 31 Centre Street. Everyone is encouraged to bring a lantern, a light, a camp light, a head light, glow sticks, whatever you have that lights up, and join in the Opening Night Lantern Parade! We will walk, dance, sing and chant, bringing light to the darkest season. The Lantern Parade is sponsored by the very fitting MSDCO Shop! part of Maine Street Design.
Midcoast Youth Center has a Lantern Kit for you to use if you don’t want to bring something from home.

Thanks to a generous anonymous donation, SubZero Ice Carvings will be showcasing a huge demo at the Pocket Park (next to Lisa Marie’s Made in Maine on Front Street), and there will be two other ice sculptures in the downtown to enjoy as you explore shops and restaurants. One should make the PERFECT selfie station. Make sure to tag #mainstreetbath and #bathwinterfest
