Residents encouraged to help paint the town red

Feel the love throughout the Kennebunks in February as Kennebunk, Kennebunkport and Arundel prepare to Paint the Town Red.

Retail businesses and restauranteurs (plus anyone else who wants to light up red) will be lighting up the town red and offering special red tag and red plate specials during this month of love.

All local businesses are invited to participate:

 Retail Store/Shops: Offer a red tag special (such as 20 percent off lobster pillows or décor)

 Restaurants: Offer a red plate special (such as a free cup of chowder or soup with any lobster dinner purchase)

 Hotels: Feature a romance package (such as Five Shades of Red package with several red components)

 Light a business or home with red lights

 Host an event (i.e., wine tasting, special dinner, tour)

 Post photos and messages on social media, with examples of how the Kennebunks are New England’s Most Romantic towns.

 Use #lovekpt, #lovekbk and encourage guests to use it in social media posts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

For more information, call the Chamber of Commerce at 967-0857, email events@gokennebunks.com or visit www.lovethekennebunks.com.
