What is the date for the Christmas lighting at Nubble? And is it lit throughout the month of December? I'd also appreciate any tips for best time to go, etc.

Are there other Maine lighthouses that are decorated for Christmas?

Many thanks in advance,

Hey Joody

Usually the lighting is the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Joanne Yeaton (vice chair of FPHL) plays in the Wind Ensemble there every year, I can ask her to be sure.

It's lit for most of January, I believe also. But I'm not sure of the exact duration.

Thanks Ross. Please ask her...I would love to attend. If that's the date though, this year might have to be just going at my convenience during December. We'll be in NYC Thanksgiving day and then on to MA for the weekend.

Any other Christmas photo opportunites at lighthouses during December? Portsmouth Harbor and up through Maine? I'll be in Vermont a few days in December too.

Here is the correct information.

Saturday November 29, 2008 The place to be is Sohier Park.

People are advised to take the Shuttle Bus from Ellis Park in Short Sands Beach which will run from 3:30PM to 7:00PM

The Cape Neddick Lightin York Maine is lite from Nov. 29, 2008 to Jan. 1, 2009.

If anyone has any questions they may call the York Park and Recreation Department at 207 363 1040 during regular business hours.

Or you may check out the web site www.yorkmaine.org and click on the side bar for the York Parks and Recreation Dept.

I hope this is of some help.
