Sometimes the best way to kick off a New Year is by doing something that you haven't ever done before.  So I suggest if you've never spent New Year's Eve in Freeport to give  LL Bean a Holiday bid for a new tradition.Start the fun early with our family-friendly event.

This sounds so pun intended. Bean's is hosting a family friendly event pretty much all day on New Year's eve including a huge forest of lit trees, a huge running model train set, free movies and kid's activities. They have a reindeer stable and will be offering live music and fireworks.   Best of all the whole thing wraps up about 7 pm so you have plenty of time to get back or stay and have a late dinner and enjoy your midnight transition into 2018.

Sounds like fun.
