LIGHTING CEREMONY, SANTA'S ARRIVAL & FIREWORKS: 5-6PM
The Annual Lighting of the Green and Lights On Festival is traditionally held the Friday following the Friday after Thanksgiving. The Lighting of the Green has happened in the center of Taunton for 100 years, and we hope this tradition will survive 100 more. This year's Lighting of the Green will be focused on 100 years of family memories, and it's sure to offer something for the whole family. We hope you will join us for some great food, fun and family entertainment on Saturday, December 7, 2013.
