Sunapee Celebrates the Magic of the Season Dec. 5

Sunapee will hold a holiday celebration—Sunapee Harbor Magic—on Saturday, December 5 from 1 to 6 p.m.

Celebrate the magic in our community by singing, having a hot cocoa and taking a hay ride, participating in a workshop, visiting Santa or by strolling through the harbor. We hope to see you there! – From the event poster

This year’s holiday event at the harbor will include Santa workshops, hay rides, a silent auction, and at 5 p.m. a “harbor lighting”  and “magical” surprise. Santa will visit at 3:30 p.m.
