Hyannis Christmas Stroll & Harbor Lighting

Hyannis Main Street

All along Main Street there's a full day of family fun with breakfast with Santa,  strolling carolers, arts & crafts, trolley and horse-drawn carriage rides, a petting zoo, and much more.

As daylight turns to dark, Hyannis Harbor comes to life with the annual Harbor Lighting & Boat Parade. It's an evening of music, food, and colorfully lit boats cruising the Harbor.



Holly Days in Sandwich


Sandwich transforms into a winter wonderland with festive holiday fun that includes a town-wide Cookie Stroll, reading and lighting of The Littlest Christmas Tree, community carol sing, home tours and special promotions.



Nantucket Christmas Stroll


Hundreds of decorated seven-foot Christmas trees line downtown streets, and are illuminated in a ceremony with caroling at dusk the day after Thanksgiving. Every year a local artist or decorator is chosen to adorn the huge 20-foot tree at the top of Main Street, a tree that "magically" talks to all who visit it during Christmas Stroll Saturday.  

Also on Stroll Saturday, carolers in costume sing familiar holiday tunes at various downtown locations. A variety of live entertainment is offered in the middle of Main Street, which is closed to traffic for the day. There are craft shows, performances, special dinners at island restaurants (make your reservations now!), tours, and exhibitions. Many merchants still offer holiday refreshments to shoppers.
Midday on Stroll Saturday, the Nantucket Town Crier, in full regalia, will ring in Christmas Stroll, and then lead everyone to the wharves to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus, who arrive via Coast Guard Cutter, walk down the wharf, and then ride to the Jared Coffin House downtown to meet with children.
