    Hathaway Holiday Lights


    * Unfortunately, this stop is no longer on the list, as the owners have moved. However, there may be a new display nearby. We'll keep you posted!

    This light display comes with music and also collects donations for a good cause! The lights run nightly from 430-9PM .The musical show is free for holiday onlookers, but a red stocking hangs by the road to collect donations for Eastern Maine Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Check out the show from 2013!

    Wiswell Farm


    You can't miss this beautiful display if you drive the River Rd. after dark. Known for their fresh vegetables and plants in the spring, they have also developed a reputation for their ever growing light display.

    Silk Street


    We kinda stumbled upon this one! We noticed it as we were heading up North Main Street in Brewer. Just turn onto Silk Street and you'll find this great display near the corner of Washington Street. Trust us you can't miss it!

    Gettysburg Avenue


    Residents of this neighborhood became notorious in past years for their elaborate decor fueled by friendly competition from neighbors for the best lights.

    Downtown Bangor


    Of course there are lots of lights to see at the annual Festival of Lights Parade, but you can find beautiful lights throughout downtown all season long. The Maine Discovery Museum is literally covered in lights this year! It's looking pretty festive in Downtown!

    Milford Street


    You can see this display from Stillwater Ave! Every bit of yard space has been transformed into a winter wonder land! If you want a closer look just head down Elm Street off Stillwater.

    Upper Dedham Road


    This is totally worth the trip out to Dedham! The halls are definitely decked out at this Dedham home! We tried to capture as much as we could with photos, but they don't do it justice! You gotta see it for yourself!

    Constitution Avenue


    This whole neighborhood is in the holiday spirit! There's so many great displays throughout the street! Make sure you drive around  the whole loop! This photo is just a taste of what you'll see! Someone even lit up their basketball hoop in colorful lights! The whole street is awesome!

    Ohio Street


    On Ohio St. in Bangor, it's hard to miss this decked out house. Tons of light up decorations and inflatables deck the lawn with snowmen and a manger scene.

    Another Ohio St. home has decked the halls. Many strands of lights outline the home, trees and fence. The yard features inflatable snowmen and Santa, with lit candy canes and deer.

    Elm Street


    Fans of A Christmas Story will love this simple but awesome display on Elm St. in Bangor. You'll first notice a fully decorated tree on the porch, within the window is the infamous leg lamp. "Fra-gee-ly. Must be Italian!"
