This event is perfect for a date night out for couples wanting to get out and enjoy the thousands of festive lights. Plus, storefronts will have penguins and polar bears in the windows to see who can spot the most.

It's also perfect for families since Santa Claus, his sleigh, and real reindeer will be there with gifts in the Biddeford City Hall parking lot. A special holiday treat is promised once you make it to Saco.

In addition to the fun, they will also be collecting non-perishable food items and winter essentials at Biddeford City Hall.

What a wonderful way to get Mainers out enjoying the holiday fun in a safe, and socially distanced, way.
