I know we talked about the holiday events last week, but in case you missed it here is what is happening in Provincetown this week! Join us as we kick off the holiday event season with the lighting of the Pilgrim Monument and the Lobster Pot Tree! It is a great time to celebrate the season and this community that we are so happy to be a part of!


Every year on the night before Thanksgiving, the Pilgrim Monument is lit up in Christmas lights. This year the Monument will be honoring the Provincetown School Children Past & Present. The Provincetown Business Guild provides cider and cookies on the lawn while John Thomas provides the musical entertainment. Join the community from 5 – 7 as we wait for the moment the lights are turned on!

Monument Lighting

November 28th brings about the lighting of the Lobster Pot Christmas Tree in Lopes Square. This ”tree” is assembled every year by Julian Popko and his family. Made up of 112 lobster pots, red bows and plastic lobsters, the lobster pot tree stands 2 stories tall and will be lit with 3,400 lights. During the ceremony the last 2 pots with 58 lobster buoys attached are lifted by crane and placed on the top of the “tree” as the spectators count down. This event has become very popular with both locals and visitors and is a fun way to reconnect with friends that we don’t have time to visit with during the height of the season!
