Charlestown's Christmas City kicked off the festivities on November 25th with a magical Christmas lights display in Greenway Park. From that day forward, the city of Charlestown will be aglow with lights at Greenway Park, the City Square, and the Family Activities Park.

There are hundreds of thousands of shimmering lights all over everything here and the result is an enchanting winter wonderland perfect for a date night or a family outing.

In addition to festive displays, we can also expect a glow-in-the-dark holiday train, live reindeer, visits from Santa Claus, and an incredible Winter Holiday Market.

The market will return this year after much success during the 2021 season. Vendors will be selling everything from holiday décor to gift items and hand-made crafts.

Christmas City also features a giant 55-foot tall tree–one of the largest in the state and definitely the perfect backdrop for a photo-op.
