Illuminate Boston

The fourth Illuminate Boston Festival follows the beautiful light parades and stunning projects of Illuminate 2015, 2016 and 2017.

This year’s design has used the symbolism in flora and fauna to represent the qualities of the pilgrims as the festival builds up to international celebrations of the 400th anniversary in 2020. The events tell the story of Boston’s connections to the Pilgrims and the Mayflower story.

The beautiful sweeping market place of Boston will be full of events, dance and activities, including live performances and a Christmas Market.

Performing for the first time will be the Fen Folk Bateria who have been exploring samba-reggae, afoxé, maracatu and batucada samba rhythms.

The Christmas lights will also be switched on during the evening.
