The holidays are a magical time of year on Cape Cod – or anywhere for that matter.

It’s a time for family. A time for warmth and comfort. And on Cape Cod, it’s a time for lighting ceremonies, caroling, and parades.

Beautiful Holiday Light Displays

Water based activities are central to Cape Cod – and it’s no different during the holidays.

Thanksgiving weekend marks traditional lighting ceremonies for many Cape Cod towns.

The Heritage Museums and Gardens in historic Sandwich hosts the Spectacle of Lights where both indoor and outdoor light displays abound on the one hundred acre site. This year’s theme is trains, with both working models and displays of antique toy trains to view. Or take a ride on the recently restored carousel.

The Spectacle of Lights is open from 5-9 pm Nov 23rd to Dec 26th.

Caroling And Candlelight Processions

Out on the tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown also hosts a Thanksgiving weekend lighting ceremony, with the 252 foot Pilgrim Monument as its centerpiece.

Barnstable is noted for its boat parade while Chatham, Brewster, Hyannis, Bourne, Dennis, Harwich and Falmouth each host their own holiday events with candlelight processions, carolers, and individual town activities.
