Taunton's 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. The Lighting of the Green is typically coupled with a same-day Lights On festival, and a next-day Christmas parade. This year's event will be held on a Saturday to allow ample time for extra sites, performances and activities. 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 throughout the whole city. The Old Colony Historical Society will have an Open House in the museum all day as well as family-friendly craft projects from 2- 8 p.m.
