The headline certainly has you wondering why we would be talking about a Christmas light display in July. Is it a Christmas in July event? Nope. Is it an event that will be coming up sometime next month? Nope. It's an event so massive that preparations and construction have already begun in hopes of having it ready to go for the 2021 holiday season.

According to a Facebook post from Winthrop's Kale Malmsten, owner of Augusta West Kampground, a huge holiday light display will be headed for the iconic Central Maine camping resort for the upcoming holiday season. With the help and vision of Kaleb Pushard of SkyBox Holiday & Event Lighting, this promises to be an absolutely massive display.

According to Kaleb, this display will be a near mile-long drive-thru event and will, at the very least, be the second largest display of lights in the entire state of Maine. The event is being called Winter Wonderland at Augusta West and promises to be one the best things you can do with your family this holiday season.

As we get closer and dates and times of operation are ironed out we will keep you informed of the updates.
