Mayor Marty Walsh continued the neighborhood trolley tradition with a stop in the North End on Sunday afternoon. Kids of all ages came out to see Santa and the lighting of the Prado tree on the Paul Revere Mall.
“I’m excited to start the season by making stops throughout the City for the annual trolley tour and tree lightings. This weekend-long celebration is a great family tradition for all Bostonians to come out and enjoy.” – Mayor Marty Walsh.
Young musicians and singers from the Eliot School played carols for the large crowd gathered at the Paul Revere Mall.
Joining the Mayor were local elected officials, City Councilor Lydia Edwards, State Representative Aaron Michlewitz, Boston Police Commissioner William Gross and Boston Fire Commissioner Joseph Finn.
Now in its 24th year, the Enchanted Trolley Tour is a Boston holiday tradition of lighting holiday trees throughout the city. The trolley made 16 stops throughout the city. The event, sponsored by Bank of America, includes visits with Santa, holiday performances and tree lightings.
