The City of Ellsworth is about to deck the halls in style this Christmas! Last year, a committee made up of local organizations got together to coordinate planning and publicity for holiday programming, with a goal of making Ellsworth a destination for Christmas activities. There is a lot planned for 2019! As always, some of our favorite community activities will be going on along with a few more that are sure to put everyone in the holiday spirit. We hope that everyone will get out and enjoy everything that makes both our area and the season magical.
