Boston Common Tree Lighting

November 30, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Boston Common Holiday Tree Lighting  – 2017

This exciting event takes place near the Visitors Information Center on Tremont St and stars the special tree sent as a gift from Nova Scotia .  The Mayor will be joined by Santa and members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.  Refreshments, music, and entertainment will be provided by local groups.  Lights on the tree – almost 7,000 of them – go on at about 7:55pm, followed by lights on 80+ other trees throughout the Common and the Public Garden.  When the Mayor turns on the lights, the Boston holiday season officially begins!  The show closes with a special fireworks display over the Common.

Before the lighting event, a free ice-skating show by the Skating Club of Boston featuring national and international competitive skaters takes place at Frog Pond from 5pm-6pm.
