What: The Lobster Pot Tree was lit on Saturday, 11/25 at 5:30 pm. The tree frame consists of over 100 lobster pots. The tree trimmings include approximately 120 bows, 3,400 LED lights, plastic lobsters and buoys. Here’s a short video showing the lighting and celebration courtesy of the Cape Cod Wave magazine.
This unique holiday tree was featured in the Smithsonian Magazine’s article Seven Places Reinventing the Christmas Tree! If you can’t make it the weekend of the lighting, the tree will be lit through January 2018. Next year’s tree will be lit on Saturday, November 24, 2018.
