holiday ship lighting in martin's park photoA special childrenís celebration will be held on Saturday, November 26, at 4 p.m. at the Smith Family Waterfront in the Seaport District and Fort Point neighborhood when the Friends of Martinís Park and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department host the second annual holiday lighting of the ship in Martinís Park.

Located at 64 Sleeper Street on the South Boston Waterfront and visible from the Northern Avenue Bridge, Martinís Park at the Smith Family Waterfront is a climate-resilient park built in memory of eight-year-old Martin W. Richard, the youngest victim of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. The accessible park provides play opportunities for children, families, and visitors of all abilities. The wooden play ship is the centerpiece of the space that will be lit for the holidays.

Martinís Park will be transformed into a beautiful holiday display when the ship, surrounding beach fencing, and pedestrian bridge are illuminated with over 1,500 feet of blue and white tube lights.

Santa will arrive by boat with the Boston Police Harbor Unit at the Harborwalk and enter the Park to switch on the lights.

Entertainment will be provided by acappella group Ball In The House performing a selection of holiday classics, along with special guest, the Seaportís own Betty the Yeti.

Hot cocoa will be provided by Tuscan Kitchen, Caffe Nero and Dunkiní., and with donation, attendees will have the opportunity to take home a customized special souvenir of the second annual event while supplies last.
