Christmas Prelude, now in its 36th year, is a wonderful Christmas event put on each year by the Kennebunkport Business Association. Spanning across nearly two weeks (Nov. 30-Dec. 10), Prelude is filled with such happenings as the Dock Square tree lighting, the Hat Parade, candlelight caroling at the Franciscan Monastery, making gingerbread houses, Fire & Ice and more!

You'll find the full schedule here.
