Listener Don Gaile was taking his son Justin, 13, to the screening of "Polar Express" at the Nordica Theatre in Freeport this morning and came across one of those "just another day in Maine" moments -- carriage horses having a quick bath in a parking lot.

You can meet these gorgeous animals this weekend at Freeport's Sparkle Celebration (perhaps you saw us in the Parade of Lights last night!). Free horse-drawn carriage rides, ice sculptures, synchronized musical light displays, a talking Christmas tree and too much holiday merriment to mention here.
