Event Information

If you want to talk traditions, this one has been ongoing since 1940!  The Boston Common Holiday Tree Display annual event includes the lighting of Boston’s official non-denominational holiday shrub, and trees throughout Boston Common, The Public Garden and Commonwealth Avenue Mall.  The 46-foot white spruce will light up when Mayor Menino, together with Santa Clause, throws the switch.  The celebration includes entertainment, refreshments, and family fun.
