Tree for Boston

2017 Boston Tree Lighting

November 30, 2017
Boston Common

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Halifax Explosion.

Nova Scotia will never forget the support Boston provided in 1917, and to say thank you, the province will once again give the people of Boston the gift of a beautiful Christmas tree.

For decades, this tradition honours the kindness and support Bostonians offered Nova Scotians in a time of need.

You can watch the tree lighting broadcast live via a webcast on or via cable on WCVB Boston – the ABC affiliate.
