Boston Christmas Holiday Light Attractions

Hey everyone, it’s your events monkey Johnny!

Holiday light displays are an excuse to go outdoors at night. Bundle up warm, enjoy the stars in the sky and thousands or millions of lights celebrating primarily Christmas but most are pretty secular, Frosty the Snowman level, with a tip of the hat to Hanukkah. Here are attractions including which dates they are open, near Boston. And beyond Boston, more attractions all across New England!

Those marked with an “S” indicate a special event such as caroling or photos with Santa.

See my reviews of Six Flags New England, Bright Nights, and more!
