“The magic begins as darkness falls Join us to experience the brilliance of New England’s biggest and brightest light display! With over 650,000 lights, witness the transformation of our central gardens into an extravaganza of festive lights in a dramatic display of brilliant color. This year, we’re taking our dramatic display to new heights, incorporating—for the first time—our magnificent sculpture exhibit, Unearthed, by artist Steve Tobin.”
Small Business Saturday
When: Sat, November 30, 8am – 8pm
Where: Your home town
This is a great time to shop locally and support the small businesses in your town that contribute to your neighborhood. Or as I like to think of it, spend your money where you can yell at the owner instead of at the call center.
