1st Annual Holiday Ship Lighting in Martin's Park

Sat Nov 27, 2021
4:00pm ET

Martin’s Park in Boston's Seaport will be transformed into a beautiful holiday display when the park’s wooden play ship, surrounding beach fencing, and the pedestrian bridge are illuminated with over 1500 feet of blue and white tube lights. Watch as Santa arrives by boat at the Harborwalk and enters the Park to switch on the lights.

Visible from the Northern Avenue Bridge and within Fort Point Historic Landmark District, visitors are encouraged to head inside the park for the celebration, sponsored by the Friends of Martin’s Park and the City of Boston. 

Entertainment will be provided by Ball In The House, performing a selection of holiday classics, along with special guest the Seaport’s own Betty the Yeti. Hot cocoa will be provided by Tuscan Kitchen and Flour Bakery, and attendees will have the opportunity to take home a souvenir of the 1st Annual event, while supplies last.
