Nova Scotians and Bostonians anxiously await the lighting of the tree for Boston taking place Thursday November 29th on Boston
Common. The tree-lighting ceremony will broadcast on W-C-V-B, an A-B-C affiliate, to an audience of more than 200-thousand viewers
and another 20-thousand watch the show live on Boston Common.
“Nova Scotia will never forget the support the city of Boston provided after the Halifax Explosion, and to say thank you, the province has given the annual gift of a beautiful Nova Scotia Christmas tree,” said Deputy Premier Karen Casey on behalf of Premier Stephen McNeil. “Our relationship with Boston remains strong and continues to grow in new ways.”
Leading up to the ceremony, Deputy Premier Karen Casey on behalf of Premier Stephen McNeil has partnered with Craft
