Bucksport tree lighting, parade kick off holiday season

Written by

BUCKSPORT - Hundreds braved the cold Saturday in Bucksport for the town's third annual Christmas tree lighting and parade. 

 There were more floats in the parade this year than in years past. The floats are judged by town council members and while there's no specific theme, organizers encouraged everyone to decorate it as festive as possible.

 

"If you have a chance just take a drive through Main Street in Bucksport and check it out -- the Christmas lights are quite good looking," Bucksport firefighter Chris Grindle said

 

Grindle said more floats and volunteers are always welcome.

 

For anyone who is interested in participating, it is free to enter with a chance to win various prizes including a Visa gift card.
