NOVEMBER 30 WHITE LIGHTING CEREMONY-begins at dusk at the old paper mill site on Osborne Street. Santa leads the entire town through the streets, lighting up each block with thousands of white lights as he goes. Then, at the waterfront, the giant town tree is lit accompanied by holiday music and good cheer. Click here to read more about the White Lighting!
