77th Annual Boston Common Tree Lighting

It was an amazing night at the 77th annual Boston Common Tree Lighting! The holiday show was filled with festive celebrations including performances by Andy Grammer, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory: The Musical, the cast of the North Shore Musical Theatre production of “A Christmas Carol” and more! The Red Sox World Series trophy even made its way to the stage!

The lighting of the trees on the Common is made possible through the generosity of the Egan Family Foundation, the Lynch Foundation, the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority, John Moriarty & Associates, Berkshire Bank, the Herb Chambers Companies, the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau, and contributions from other individuals and institutions.

The annual holiday display includes the official Christmas tree from Nova Scotia and trees throughout Boston Common. This is the 47th year that Nova Scotia has given a tree to the people of Boston as thanks for relief efforts following the December 6, 1917, explosion of a munitions ship in Halifax Harbor.  Within 24 hours of the disaster a train loaded with supplies and emergency personnel was making its way from Boston to Nova Scotia.
