Lighting of the Lights
Annual ceremony and lighting of the holiday season lights. The evening includes hot chocolate, choir singing, and a visit from a certain snowman too!
Friday, December 4, 2020: at 6:30 PM, on the Upper Common
A fun annual event for children age seven and younger and their parents. Children are sorted by age group, then they romp through a fresh hay bed, searching for thousands of chocolate eggs. Organized chaos at its best. Prizes are awarded too. Fun for everyone. See some photos.
At the “Lower Common” park in Wakefield, MA (just southeast of Lake Quannapowitt, along Common Street).
