Painting the Town Red


Over the last few years, February has brought more than just ice and snow to the Kennebunks. Winter is long here in Maine, and we do what we can to celebrate it and enjoy every piece and part that makes us smile. So – in keeping with recent tradition – we will once more, “Paint the Town Red” and celebrate a little love.

For the entire month of February visitors and locals alike will find special deals, interesting events and wonderful surprises throughout Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. Eat, stay and play (and don’t forget skate) specials will run from January 28 – February 28, 2017.

The kick-off event began at David’s KPT on Saturday, January 28th at 7pm. FROSTED! is said to be a freezing good time. There was a custom ice bar with a luge, light fare by Chef David Turin, s’mores & hot chocolate bars, and entertainment.  Tickets included two signature drinks, with a cash bar available as well. Tickets were $50/pp in advance through Love KPT or $65/pp at the door. Remember this is only the beginning.  The complete schedule of events can be found by visiting the Event Page.

After this, the love keeps on flowing.  Here at Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture, we are offering 25% off select custom picture framing from February 2 through February 28th. Bring in your own artwork or have a new piece framed. Be sure to check our website for our hours for February. Many other shops are also offering specials, as well. River’s Edge Spa & Salon, Cottage Breeze Day Spa and Boutique, and Mainly Drizzle are just a few.  Check out the complete list on

Of course, if you are coming to the Kennebunks, you have to eat. It’s some of what we do best around here.  Even in the winter, there are so many amazing choices. To get you started there is not one, but two happy hours at Toroso, a Spanish tapas restaurant that is fairly new to town. You will find one early happy hour and another for late night snacks all winter long. Whatever suits your fancy. For dinner, Salt and Honey is offering a wonderfully Warm Dinner for Two: Pre-fix three-course dinner including a bottle of wine for $89.00, throughout the month of February.  Ports of Italy and The Kennebunkport Inn are both offering special events all month long. If you are staying for a few days, check out the entire list of specials on the Restaurant Page.

Staying over is always part of the fun. The Kennebunk Inn has a Valentine’s Day package. The Boathouse is offering a crazy engagement deal. Don’t forget Captain Lord Mansion, The Breakwater Inn and Spa and The Grand Hotel. There are so many to choose from. As before, a complete list is available on the Hotels Page.
