Joy to the Ville
Embrace the holiday spirit at the third annual Joy to the Ville community event!
Celebrate the magic of the holiday season in Waterville with Waterville Creates!, the Maine Film Center, and friends the Waterville Public Library, the Colby College Museum of Art, Snow Pond Center for the Arts, and the Children's Discovery Museum -- as we join forces with downtown businesses to organize a day of free, family-friendly holiday programming throughout Waterville! Sponsored by Bangor Savings Bank.
All events and admissions are free. Free cotton candy from 10 - 4pm (while supplies last) at Railroad Square Cinema, Common Street Arts, and the Chace Forum.
