Paul Revere Mall (Prado) will once again be the site of Mayor Martin Walsh’s enchanted trolley tour and tree lighting tradition that officially opens the holiday season for the City of Boston by lighting trees throughout the city.
This is the 22 year of this special holiday festivity of lighting holiday trees while bringing holiday spirit to children and adults.
Besides the tree lighting, there will be a visit by Santa Claus, holiday performances and more, sponsored by Bank of America.
“Our holiday trolley tour and tree lighting provides some of the best family memories of the year, building community spirit throughout Boston and bringing a little extra joy to residents during the holiday season,” said Mayor Walsh. “The holiday season is a time for friends, family and neighbors to come together and celebrate, and I welcome all to attend this weekend of inclusive, family-friendly fun.”
“Bank of America is proud to continue our support of Mayor Walsh’s Enchanted Trolley Tour, a long-standing tradition that brings joy and excitement to neighborhoods and families across the City,” said Michael Chamberlain, Bank of America Massachusetts President. “We thank the City of Boston for the opportunity to help kick off the holiday season and make our communities stronger and more vibrant.”
The Mayor’s Office of Tourism, Sports and Entertainment is committed to producing fun, free public events for Bostonians and visitors to the City and this year will collaborate with Bank of America, which is sponsoring the 2017 Mayor’s Enchanted Trolley Tour and Tree Lightings.
The North End event is scheduled for Sunday, December 3 at 2:30 PM in Paul Revere Mall (Prado).
