Boston Tree Lighting  |  November 28, 2017  |  5 Days & 4 Nights

Join us as we celebrate our cross-border friendship with Boston during the year's tree lighting ceremony. For 40 years, Nova Scotia has sent the gift of a Christmas tree as thanks for Boston's quick response and generosity during the 1917 explosion. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the explosion, and is sure to be a spectacular tree lighting event.
