Tree Lighting on the Stoneham Town Common
Come celebrate the Tree Lighting on the Stoneham Common. The festivities annually herald the season with festive holiday lights and decorations enjoyed by the community for weeks to come.
The Tree Lighting is a FREE afternoon event open to all. Beginning at 3:00pm, attendees can enjoy fun activities, sample delicious food and beverages and be entertained with holiday music and performances.
Santa makes his grand entrance by fire truck shortly after the festivities begin, and elves help him all afternoon as he listens carefully to requests from children. Fun activities include kiddie train rides around the common sponsored by Stoneham Recreation, games, balloon creations, holiday craft making and Santa’s Mailbox.
Attendees can warm up with delicious hot food sampling, and hot cocoa and popcorn provided by local Chamber restaurants. Traditional holiday music and current favorites play throughout the Common, and the Girl Scouts of Stoneham lead everyone in singing popular carols in front of the Big Tree. A Memory Tree provides a beautiful way to remember loved ones during the holiday season.
The festivities culminate with the traditional lighting of the big tree in the center of the Common.
This event is made possible by: Dr Mickey's Pediatric and Orthodonic Specialists, Stoneham Bank, Salem Five, Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, and Travel. Trips & Vacays/Dream Vacations
