Hometown Holidays is fast approaching, and Piscataquis County WILL safely celebrate the wonderful Christmas season. 2020 has been a tough year for all of us, but especially for our children. It's time to usher in some holiday cheer! Let's bring back the joy in every child's eyes by participating.

Here are some ways you can get involved:

Submit your county-wide events here!

Piscataquis County tree-lightings, Santa-sightings, holiday sales, decorating contests and parades; whatever the event, SUBMIT it to the chamber and it will be promoted far and wide!

Click on the button below to get on the schedule!

Mitten Drive
The chamber will be collecting hand-knitted mittens to be distributed to children who need them at the Dover-Foxcroft Tree Lighting. To donate, drop mittens into the collection boxes located at Rowell's Garage, Will's Shop 'n Save, and the Chamber from Nov 10-27th.

Holiday Chamber Bucks
The chamber offers gift certificates year-round in $10 or $20 denominations, accepted at businesses throughout Piscataquis County, which helps us keep those dollars local. This holiday season, you can sponsor a needy Piscataquis family by purchasing chamber bucks which will be distributed prior to Christmas. Click here for more information.

NEW this year, the Holiday Lights Driving Tour allows for social distancing while providing families some quality time in their vehicles as they follow a map through individual communities to see decorated homes and businesses. To get on the map, click HERE.

Dover-Foxcroft Festival of Lights Parade Float Application
CLICK HERE to Register a FLOAT in the Dover-Foxcroft HomeTown Holidays Parade!

For a printable parade application form, click HERE.

The Festival of Lights Parade is on December 5th.
Santa and Mrs. Claus will depart from FA at 5pm, head down W. Main St. and stop at the Dover-Foxcroft Fire Station where Santa will light up the Christmas Tree.

Things will be a little different this year; we won't be gathering inside the fire station and children won't be able to sit on Santa's lap. However, Santa will be able to speak to the children and receive their wish lists (see below) in a very unique way. We do have to keep Santa and Mrs. Claus safe!

We are asking local businesses to decorate their vehicles, trucks, trailers, etc. to make the parade bright and exciting for the kids in our community. Let's end 2020 on a festive note!

Printable wish-lists for SANTA
