“Inspired to Ride,” 2 p.m. in Brunswick

The documentary about the inaugural TransAm Bike Race, “Inspired to Ride,” will begin a week-long run at the Frontier Cinema and Cafe. The documentary follows the first bike race along the TransAmerica Trail, held in 2014, when 45 cyclists set out on the 4,233-mile self-supported trip from Oregon to Virginia. The documentary was made by the same directors that made the film “Ride the Divide.” The Frontier Cinema is located at 14 Maine Street. Tickets are priced at $12.

Schooner to shine, 6:30 p.m. in Bath

Maine Maritime Museum’s iconic sculpture, the evocation of the schooner Wyoming, will be illuminated for the first time. Each of the six 120-foot-tall masts of Wyoming will be lit by 300-watt, low-energy fixtures, brightly illuminating the sculpture. The public is invited to the museum free of charge at 6:30 p.m. to celebrate the inaugural lighting. Wyoming, the largest wooden sailing vessel ever built in the United States, was constructed at the Percy & Small Shipyard, which is now home to Maine Maritime Museum. The Wyoming sculpture was completed with masts in 2013. It replicates the dimensions and location of the historic vessel as it was constructed at the shipyard in 1909. The complete sculpture spans almost 450 feet. The sculpture’s lighting will complete a day of holiday events at the museum, starting at 1 p.m. with a free festive family day and ending with a Maine-made rum tasting from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. To learn more go to MaineMaritimeMuseum.org.
