Ogunquit’s Christmas by the Sea

This year marks Ogunquit’s 23rd Annual Christmas by the Sea weekend. Weather permitting, it is scheduled for Friday, December 11 through Sunday, December 13. Check back with the Ogunquit calendar of events for any change in dates or events due to the weather.

Friday evening features all the traditional events: carolers, the Handbell choir concert, town tree lighting and the beach bonfire. At the tree lighting, the winner of the town-wide decorating contest will be announced.

Saturday is chock full of activities, sure to please children and adults alike. Of course Santa sails into Perkins Cove to be whisked away by fire truck to the Fire Station for a 9:30 appointment with waiting children. Day long events include the annual hayrides, an Arts and Crafts show, and a basement bazaar. Throughout the day, there will be Holiday storytelling, a chowder and chocolatefest (area restaurants compete), kids’ ornament making, a Christmas parade, a candlelight walk to the Living Manger and the Barbershop Quartet concert  at the Ogunquit Baptist Church.

Hayrides continue on Sunday and be sure to save a few dollars for the annual 50% off sale at our favorite shop in town, Spoiled Rotten. Yep, everything in the store is 50% off -what a way to shop for Christmas!! It’s held on Monday, December 14th, the day after the weekend… There is plenty of availability here at the Falls to stay over for the special sale event- Reserve soon….

Angelina’s Wine Dinner a Blast!

November 16, 2009

Another Great Wine Dinner

This past Saturday, The Falls held the second wine /dinner at Angelina’s. We thought the first one was great, but this one proved to be even better. 40 Vacation Club owners signed up within three days of the announcement and despite 6.3 inches of rain, everyone showed up.

By the second glass of wine, no-one cared that it was raining cats and dogs!

Five courses of wonderful food (and lots of it) accompanied by appropriate wines with each course, and the smiles were wide spread, the conversation volume was up and owners had made lots of new friends. Good thing Angelina’s is just next door- no-one had to drive far to get home…..

Many of the owners who were there had attended the first wine/dinner, so be sure to watch for the next scheduled dinner- you won’t want to miss it!!!!
