The cold weather is approaching, leaves are changing, and the holidays are just around the corner. Join us for Concord's Annual Holiday Tree Lighting & Parade. This year’s event will be run by Concord Recreation and the Concord Celebrations Committee. Festivities will begin at 3:00pm and the streets will close at 4:00pm. Enjoy musical acts, entertainers, and shopping. The holiday parade will begin at 4:50 with a new parade route this year! Please see below or check with Concord Recreation for details. Tree lighting will be at 5:30pm. Meet Santa at the Concord Visitiors Center after the tree lighting! Roads reopen at 6:00pm.

Please note the parade route has changed this year. The parade will now start at the Hunt Recreation Center, take a right onto Hubbard Street, take a left onto Walden Street, followed by a right onto Main Street to light the tree. 

Following the parade and tree lighting, there will be a Holiday Ball at the Scout House with the Beantown Swing Orchestra. Tickets for the Holiday Ball are $15 adults, $10 students/seniors, children 12 and under are free. For any questions about the Holiday Ball please contact Frank Hsieh at
