Mayor Michelle Wu, the Boston Parks and Recreation Department, and title sponsor The Province of Nova Scotia will host Boston’s signature holiday celebration, the 81st Annual Boston Common Tree Lighting, on Thursday, December 1, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. adjacent to the Visitor’s Information Center at 139 Tremont Street.
Mayor Wu will be joined by Nova Scotia Premier Tim Houston for the event, marking the 51st 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.
