Saturday, Dec. 7, Shop Mom & Pop Day
Visit stores for special promotions, and take a tour of the whole downtown to check out the beautifully designed window displays! Our downtown businesses proudly decorate their storefronts with holiday cheer, plus, this year, enjoy a stroll throughout the downtown to find, “Home for the Holidays.” Conceived by Eileen Foley of the Design Committee, each vacant window in the downtown is designed by a different group, and each features a different decade from the last century.

Find locally made gifts at the Anti-Freeze Arts & Crafts Fair on Saco Island from 9:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. and the Oak + the Ax Craft Fair at 140 Main Street!
