The Emerald Necklace Conservancy and Charlesgate Alliance are building on this annual tradition and bringing their signature emerald green lighting to the Charlesgate Park block of the Mall for the third consecutive year.

For the first time this year, the lights on the Commonwealth Avenue Mall will extend to Kenmore Square.

Trees along the Mall will be illuminated through April 1 with elegant white lights made possible thanks to Friends of the Public Garden.

Please join us to as we hit the switch and celebrate the lighting of trees up and down Commonwealth Avenue.
