Santa on a Sunbeam

MOUNT DESERT — The annual Northeast Harbor Christmas Festival will be held Saturday, Dec. 1, with activities throughout the day.

A highlight, as usual, will be the arrival at the marina of Santa and Mrs. Claus aboard the Sunbeam at 4 p.m. Then the jolly old pair will settle onto the porch of Carter’s Real Estate to greet children and wish them Merry Christmas.

The sixth annual Frosty 5K at The Neighborhood House is the first event of the day. A kids’ fun run begins at 9:30 a.m. and the 5K race begins at 10. Advance registration is $10. Register at The Neighborhood House or online at

Other activities of the day include horse-drawn carriage rides, a holiday card-making workshop and the Festival of Trees at Mount Desert Nursery School.
