As part of its “Bright Lights for Winter Nights” event on December 21, 2010 the Greenway Conservancy hosted the 2nd annual tree lighting of the Great Elm in the North End Greenway parks. The Great Elm was the first tree planted on the Greenway and remains the largest of the young parks. Enjoy the pictures and videos below. Also see, more photos in the photo gallery.
Adding to the festivities was bell ringing by the North End Music and Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC) led by Executive Director Rebecca Griffin. (Click the video clip below.)
City Councilor Sal LaMattina and Greenway Conservancy Executive Director Nancy Brennan led the countdown to the tree lighting. See the video below for the tree lighting. (Ed: Feel free to turn your computer sideways halfway through the video clip below. Sorry!)
