Christmas at the Causeway
November 21 - December 14, 2019
Our Winter Christmas at the Causeway is a celebration of both Christmas and a kick off for our Lobster Season. Come visit and see our giant Lobster Trap Christmas Tree! The Tree is located at the Cape Sable Island Causeway and is decorated with buoys of present day fishermen and in memory of those fishermen who have passed on and/or who have been lost at sea. We kick off the festival with the lighting of the Lobster Trap tree and a spectacular display of fireworks over Barrington Bay! Be sure to check out our shop local promotion and a wonderful parade of lights!
Highlights of the Festival include:
- The lighting of the Lobster Trap Christmas Tree
- Parade of Lights
- Fireworks over Barrington Bay
- Shop Local Promotions
- The lighting of the Lens (Seal Island Light Museum) & Old Fashioned Christmas Carol Concert at the Old Meeting House Museum
- Christmas House Tours
- Lobster Dip
