The Faneuil Hall Christmas Tree Lighting event will be on Saturday, November 23rd. The day long festivities will start at 12 pm with the arrival of Santa Claus and a performance from "A Christmas Story". There will also be a variety of live entertainment including singers, dancers and performers!
The Blink! Light & Sound Extravaganza will start at 7:30 and continue to 8:00pm. During this time, there will be special performances by the Tanglewood Festival Chorus and Paula Cole! The tree lighting will be at the end of the ceremony with Mayor Menino on hand to flip the switch.
"The light switch will turn on more than 30,000 lights and strobes on the 80-foot tree, the tallest in the northeast. That's not counting the 350,000 lights that are part of the Blink! lights and music show that will light up all of Faneuil Hall."
If you can not attend the ceremony, the festival will air live on WBZ-TV and WSBK-TV.
