Mayor's Special: 1/2 Price Boston Holiday Show Discounts!
I live in Nashua, NH and I've been aware of the Mayor's practice for a few years now and it is absolutely fabulous. To do it at this time of year is fantastic due to the large number of shows avaialble under this program. This is a time of the year when a discount can really be appreciated and to open it to non-residents as well is really appreciated. I travel around a lot and have not heard of this being done in any other cities. Congratulations to the Mayor who continues to innovate!
