Virtual Lighting of the Merry Maple 2020

Lighting of the Merry Maple 2020


The tradition continues in Amherst! The annual lighting of the Merry Maple will once again brighten up our downtown with a livestream of Santa arriving to flick the switch. In an effort to keep us all healthy and safe, our program is going virtual!

The evening will kick-off with a welcome from the Chamber and BID and offer songs, dance, and the UMass Minuteman Marching Band will lead us in a rousing rendition of Santa Claus is Coming To Town. After the lighting, we hope you will stay tuned in for a wonderful hour of entertainment including a performance by Amherst Ballet, a reading of "The Broken Ornament” by "The Spiderwick Chronicles" Author Tony DiTerlizzi, and some surprise appearances.
