OUR SHOWS

It is an amazing privilege each year to plan and produce two holiday light shows to benefit our communities in Maine. Come see our over 60,000 dancing bulbs, and help us spread cheer one light at a time.

OPERATION: SCARE ‘N SHARE

Our Halloween show illuminates our spooky streets each October. During this show, we collect voluntary canned goods and donations for our local food pantry.

CHRISTMAS WISHES

Our Christmas show sparkles during the holiday season. Each year, we aim to make the life of a child a little brigther by collecting voluntary donations for Make-A-Wish® Maine.

ABOUT NORTON LIGHTS

Norton Lights began in 2008 out of a friendly, family holiday light display competition. Since then, Stan Norton and his family — wife Melissa, sons Reed and Ryan, and even dogs Peri and Margo — pitch in, along with friends, family members and members of the Wells community, to produce a glittering annual display. 

Norton Lights partnered with Make-A-Wish® Maine in 2009, when Ryan and Reed were nine and 12 years-old. Now adults, being outside on Christmas Eve directing traffic as a family is still a beloved holiday tradition. The goal is simple: spread cheer one light at a time.

Take a peek into the heart of our operation

Each season, our Christmas light show draws thousands of visitors to our home in Wells, Maine. But there is more at the heart of Norton Lights – Chasing Maine captured the essence of our show beautifully. Enjoy this behind-the-scenes look into who we are, what we do, and why we do it.
