Santa arrives at Eggemoggin Country Store!

Everyone knows the holiday season has begun in earnest when Santa Claus arrives by horse-drawn carriage at Eggemoggin Country Store. On the afternoon of Saturday, November 24, Santa arrived with a hearty laugh in a wagon owned by Misty Blue Acres of Dexter. Children lined up for carriage rides, face painting and—of course—to sit in Santa’s lap. This was the 22nd year for the store’s holiday celebration.
