L.L. Bean lights Christmas tree



FREEPORT, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- L.L. Bean lit its Christmas tree Friday night, christening the start of the holiday season in Freeport.

Rob Caldwell and Caroline Cornish hosted the lighting ceremony on 207. A little girl, Maggie Trip, officially lit the tree as part of a wish from the Make-A-Wish program. King Memphis played holiday tunes for the large crowd.

The tree lighting marks the beginning of several weeks of festivities in Freeport. From Nov. 21 to Dec. 31 every night from 5 to 9 p.m., L.L. Bean hosts a musical holiday light show. The trees around the L.L. Bean campus are decorated with more than 25,000 lights that are synchronized with holiday music. Every weekend from Nov. 22 to Dec. 2 from 1 to 7 p.m. there are free horse-drawn carriage rides around Freeport. The rides originate in front of the Flagship store.
