Welcome to Kringleville


Presented by the Children’s Discovery Museum

A holiday tradition in Waterville, Maine.

Thousands of families from the central Maine region look forward to Santa and Mrs. Claus’ arrival in downtown Waterville. For many years, with the help of Waterville Main Street, community volunteers create a fun family holiday experience that lasts from Thanksgiving to Christmas, harkening back to our Franco-American and Lebanese families who have had a strong heritage in our area. The Children’s Discovery Museum, soon to be relocating to Waterville, continues the tradition.

This year will be a little different still, but not to worry- Santa is coming to town! Pulled by the magnificent horses from S & S Carriage Rides, Santa and Mrs. Claus will travel down Main street on Saturday, November 27th to meet families and light the tree in Castonguay Square, before heading over the bridge to light the Winslow town gazebo. You don’t want to miss it!

Santa’s arrival is in coordination with Waterville Creates’ Joy to the Ville and the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce’s Shop Small Saturda. Visit here for a full list of events.
