It’s the most wonderful time of the year at MarketStreet Lynnfield – the property will host its annual Holiday Stroll and Tree Lighting, presented with Capital One Cafè, this Sunday, November 19, 2017 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Visitors are invited to kick off the holiday season with an evening of complimentary events, including a tree lighting, a special performance from members of the Boston Pops Brass Quintet, and a visit from Santa. Shoppers will find exclusive promotions, foodies will find cold-weather bites and sips, and kids will find fun-filled arts and crafts.
Standing at over 40-feet-tall and located in Market Square, MarketStreet Lynnfield’s holiday tree, adorned with over 3,000 white lights, will light up the North Shore at 6 p.m. with the help of Santa. Offering an opportunity to give back to children in need, MarketStreet Lynnfield welcomes guests to take part in this year’s Toy Drive by bringing a new, unwrapped toy to place at the base of the tree for the children of Shriners Hospital of Boston. At the end of the night, Santa will deliver all toys to Shriners’ youngest patients – last year 300 gifts were delivered.
“Our holiday stroll has become a time honored North Shore celebration, and each year seems to spread more holiday cheer and goodwill than the last. I am particularly excited to welcome members of the Boston Pops Brass Quintet to MarketStreet Lynnfield for the first time,” says Nanci Horn, general manager at MarketStreet Lynnfield.
