Come celebrate New Year’s Eve in the Kennebunks and see the Wild Blueberry Drop at midnight! New Year’s Eve Kennebunk offers a variety of activities all night long, including, live music, ice-skating, and more.
Planning on being in the Kennebunks this New Year’s Eve and looking for a fun way to celebrate? New Year’s Eve Kennebunk is an annual, family-friendly New Year’s Eve Festival. The event provides a number of activities in the Kennenbunks on New Year’s Eve, including an early-bird countdown for those of you who just can’t quite make it to that midnight marker.
New Year’s Eve Kennebunk began four years ago when two locals decided they wanted their own, local ball drop for New Year’s Eve. The word spread and soon volunteers from a variety of sources stepped up to make the idea reality. The Brick Store Museum, and First Parish UU Church, and even the Town of Kennebunk lent a hand. Now, four years in, the event has a momentum of its own!
