There is no better place to rediscover all that is magical about this holiday season than Cape Cod!
Throughout the entire month of December, the Cape will be home to countless special events and attractions, accommodation specials, and holiday shopping opportunities. Festive events include holiday strolls, Santa's arrival by boat, craft fairs, harbor lights parades, concerts, theater productions and quintessential Cape experiences like the Falmouth Christmas Parade and the lighting of the Lobster Pot Tree in Provincetown. Cape Cod Central Railroad will transport families on a magical, storybook ride aboard the Train to Christmas Town. Heritage Museums and Gardens in Sandwich brings back its Gardens Aglow celebration, featuring over nine miles of holiday lights throughout the gardens.
The season culminates with First Night celebrations in Sandwich, Chatham and – new this year – Provincetown! First Light Provincetown stretches the New Year's celebration into a fun-filled weekend December 30-January 2! Highlights include a spectacular fireworks display, craft fair, New Year’s Dance Parties, live performances and the New Year’s Day Polar Bear Plunge.
