City Hall Common, 455 Main St.
info from the city website:
Festival of Lights is an annual tradition which brings thousands of people to the Worcester Common for a night of affordable family fun.
In addition to the official tree lighting, …
… several trees throughout the Common and along the streets of downtown are lit up, and many downtown businesses decorate their storefronts.
It is truly an evening of community and civic pride celebrating the beginning of the holiday season in Worcester.
Each year, Festival of Lights welcomes choirs from the Worcester Public Schools, as well as a headlining artist. The City of Worcester is pleased to announce our headliner this year is Jessica Cabral, a Worcester native who was a contestant on Season 15 of American Idol!
Additional performances this year by Sasha the Fire Gypsy, Snow Queen Stilt Walker and LED Light Performers from Cirque DeLight.
