The Best Boston Holiday Events

December is right around the corner and we all know what that means—the holidays are coming up! By far, the best part of the holidays is spending time with family and friends while doing fun events. Check out these three events happening in Boston this December!

  1. Blink! is a world-famous light and sound show held annually at Faneuil Hall Marketplace near the State T-Stop. This free attraction is not to be missed. In fact, the entirety of the six-week Faneuil Hall show uses as much electricity as a single-family home in one month!

  2. 2. Christmas Tree Lighting: December 5th, 2019

    This event takes place at the Boston Common, a mere train ride away from Northeastern. Bring your family, friends, and roommates, and join the city at Boston’s most extravagant tree lighting ceremony!

  3. Street Dancing In The Park B&W 1

    Illuminus is a free nighttime festival held at Downtown Crossing (on Washington Street) where local artists, performers, and designers present their creative works through art installations. There’s no better way to take a quick break from studying than to immerse yourself in the diverse culture of Boston for a night!
