The Hathaway Holiday Lights Display Is Now Open In Veazie
The annual tradition is back in Veazie!
The official start of the 2022 Hathaway Holiday Lights season is underway!
From now until December 25th, the most amazing light show in the area is happening in Veazie. It all happens nightly Dec 1st-9th from 4:30-9:00 and Dec 10th-25 th, from 4:00-9:30. Imagine gazing at over 100,00 Christmas lights? Well, now you can!
On December 16th, they are welcoming Grammy Nominated singer songwriter Judy Pancoast to sing live with the lights. The festivities will be from 5:30-7:30 with the concert starting at 6. Along with having Judy performing live, they will have Santa and his Reindeer, hot chocolate and cookies for all to enjoy.
The display is free to come visit and walk through, although they will be collecting donations for Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
The Hathaway Holiday Lights Display has become so popular, they moved from Bangor, to the front lawn of the Veazie Community School.
On their Facebook page the Hathaway family explains why this is now a yearly tradition:
For Rick and Deanna Hathaway of Bangor, life changed quickly when the birth to their twins, Alex and Warren, came eleven weeks premature. The complications that led to their premature delivery were too much for Alex and sadly he passed away only four days after his birth. Warren spent 51 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), however, you would never know it today as he is a happy, healthy five-year-old. In recognition of the care Warren received in the NICU, and as a tribute to Alex, each December they host Hathaway Holiday Lights at their home in Bangor. Thousands of people view the light show featuring 30,000 lights skillfully programmed to music. While it’s free to view, they hang a stocking by the road with a sign and flyer requesting donations be made to EMMC’s NICU.
Don't miss this opportunity to take the whole family and celebrate the season!
