Taunton, Mass., has given an amazing Christmas
gift to residents and visitors since 1914: the Lighting of the Green
and Lights on Festival.
The Christmas-on-the-green celebration and
initially started to bring shoppers to downtown Taunton -- has brought
in more than 2,000,000 people since the beginning to take in the
amazing light displays and
other Christmas decorations. The Taunton Green Christmas scene is,
arguably, the best small city Christmas lights and display presentation
foot in all of southern New England. No wonder Taunton has been known
for more than 100 years as "The Christmas City!"
The 2017 Taunton Lighting of the Green and Lights on Festival
place on Sat., Dec. 2, from 3 p.m.-8 p.m. This year's theme: Candyland!
The Festival's opening night typically offers live
entertainment, kid's activities, fireworks, and kickoff of the
lights and displays, but if you miss this special night, no
worries. The magical Christmas scenes, through the
delightful saturation of lights
and displays, resonates brilliantly during December at this
beautiful New England town green in the heart of the city.
