Old Fashioned Fun!

Downtown Window Decorating Contest

Our festively decorated downtown is shining brighter than ever this year! Our shops are getting competitive to win your vote, dazzling their window displays with many staying open late the three Fridays before Christmas.

Vote for your favorite on the back of the brochure! Submit your vote by dropping it in one of the two Magic Letter Boxes on upper and lower Front Street. Follow Main Street Bath on Face- book to see Santa live-streaming the winner on December 19th.

Neighborhood Decorating Contest

Over twenty houses within a mile of City Hall have signed up to be judged as the best house decorated for the holiday! The back of our Old Fashioned Christmas Brochure has a map, and we encourage you to take a holiday drive. Make sure to put your vote in one of the two Magic Letter Boxes on Front Street. Main Street Bath will live stream Santa announcing the winner via Facebook on December 19th.

Magic Letter Boxes

Our two red letter boxes will be on upper & lower Front Street. Drop in a letter to Santa or a senior citizen who needs some cheer & connection at a local housing program. Consider both! The letter boxes also serve as collection spots for Window Decorating Contest & Neighborhood Decorating Contest votes. They will remain available until December 19th!

Season of Giving

In the spirit of the holidays,children and adults are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items to collection spots throughout our downtown.

Brackett’s, Wilson’s, Island Treasure Toys, Bath Savings, First Federal Savings, ECO Beauty Bar, Patten Free Library, Five County Credit Union, Midcoast Federal Credit Union, Pitter Patter and Now You’re Cooking are all partnering as donation locations!

Santa Sightings on Saturdays

There are four Saturdays between Thanks- giving and Christmas and four chances you might see Santa pop up, out and about in town. Covid-19 prevents Santa from having close contact this year but that won’t stop him from spreading joy!

Keep your eyes peeled, Santa might drive by on a four wheeler, participate in baking cookies at Now You’re Cooking or appear inside a giant snow globe! Follow Main Street Bath on Facebook to see Santa’s live stream tour of the Neighborhood Decorating Contest and announcement of the winner on December 19th.

Christmas Cheer

Visit Beacon Park at 31 Centre Street. A warm indoor park where you can eat take-out or meet with friends at a safe social distance to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Shop til you drop and then drop into Beacon Park!
