Plus a Brunswick Block Party...

Weekend Spotlight: Rockland is jamming this weekend!

Thu, 11/24/2022 - 12:30pm

    I’m always looking for events that will appeal to adults and while many of the upcoming weekend in December events are holiday-themed, there are still a few little gems here and there to check out.

    Lobster Trap Tree, Live Music, Parade of Lights,

    Friday, November 25 and Saturday, November 26 — Rockland

    Rockland is the place to be this weekend! Friday evening the town lights up the iconic lobster trap tree at 6 p.m. at Harbor Park. After that, head over to Ada’s Kitchen for a live show at 7:30 p.m. where Keenan Hendricks and Josef Berger of the Rigometrics will be performing casual jams and unique covers of some of their favorite classic rock, folk, and blues. Then, bundle up on Saturday and find a place on Main Street to watch the Parade of Lights, which starts at 6 p.m. 


    Finally! The Edna St. Vincent Millay House is Finished

    Saturday, November 26 — Rockland

    Five years ago, I covered a story on the house the famous poet Edna St. Vincent Millay grew up in. It had just been purchased and needed a lot of work to restore.  So, it’ll be exciting to check out the house for its grand opening to the public. Millay House Rockland invites everyone to view the progress at 198A Broadway, on Saturday, Nov. 26, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. FMI: Millay House

    Killer Road Trip: Brunswick Block Party

    Saturday, November 26 — Brunswick

    For Small Business Saturday, head down to downtown Brunswick where the block party is. After a few tumultuous years, keep in mind 78% of business owners surveyed say holiday sales will impact their ability to stay in business in 2023. After the tree lighting at 5 p.m., the Block Party starts. Besides receiving discounts from a number of local stores, all of the shops on Pleasant Street will stay open late for shopping, hot drinks, cocktails, and more. FMI: Brunswick
