The Commonwealth Avenue Mall lighting is the final major transformation for the city of Boston into full winter mode! After the Skating Spectacular ceremony at the Boston Common, the City of Boston and Friends of the Public Garden will flip the switch immediately succeeding the Boston Common Tree lighting.
Join them on December 1 at 8 PM for a special celebration of lights! Unbelievably, the iconic holiday lights display that runs from Mass Ave down to the start of Arlington Street is organized by a volunteer committee, who just love bringing out the best of Boston. Perhaps one of the most gorgeous displays, there are over 8 blocks of tree after tree dazzling Commonwealth Avenue in gold fairy lights.
Refreshments, fresh cookies, and hot chocolate will be provided at the ceremony courtesy of The Newbury.
