Lighting of the Bay: Saturday from 3pm to 6pm

Just two days after the rush of Thanksgiving comes to an end, the Back Bay will be adorned with unique Christmas decorations, for the 29th annual Lighting of the Bay!

Lighting of the Bay Program
The Back Bay will be starting off this years program with Choir and Talent Groups Performances, starting at 3:00pm, Train Rides, holiday crafts, and cookie decorations will go until supplies are depleted, food trucks will be serving a wide variety of food and full bars will be offering your favorite cocktails and hot toddies, and at 5pm they will begin the countdown to the Lighting of the Bay– featuring Santa Claus arriving by wave runner. Get your picture taken with Santa following the lighting of the bay, too!

Oh, and did I mention The Tijuana Dogs will be performing live in concert?

Stick around for a private movie screening of “ELF!” (6pm to 8pm)

There is always free admission per PERSON, but cars generally pay $10 per car– so stuff as many people into a vehicle as you can and come enjoy this unique experience!
