Our Winter Christmas at the Causeway is a celebration of both Christmas and a kick off for our Lobster Season. Come visit and see our giant Lobster Trap Christmas Tree! The Tree is located at the Cape Sable Island Causeway and is decorated with buoys of present day fishermen and in memory of those fishermen who have passed on and/or who have been lost at sea. We kick off the festival with the lighting of the Lobster Trap tree and a spectacular display of fireworks over Barrington Bay! Be sure to check out our shop local promotion and a wonderful parade of lights!
