BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The snow isn't falling yet, but Downtown Crossing in Boston is set to be transformed into a winter wonderland with the return of "Snowflake Crossing."
The Downtown Boston Business Improvement District (Downtown Boston BID) made the announcement Wednesday. They will bring festive family activities, public art, and other surprises to Downtown Crossing through March of 2024.
Leading up to the holidays, there will be a number of events in November, including a district-wide decoration contest during which local retailers and other businesses in the area decorate their windows to dazzle the passing public. There will also be a massive seasonal light display with hundreds of lighted trees, hanging snowflakes, and other holiday decorations.
The Boston "TubaChristmas" event is planned for Saturday, Nov. 25th from noon to 1:30 p.m. with musicians playing holiday classics on the Downtown Crossing Steps. The steps will also be utilized through out the season by the Harvard University band, various other musicians and the Big Man in Red himself, Santa.
More details on the seasonal calendar will be released later this month.
