About Charlestown's Christmas City

Beginning the Friday after Thanksgiving each year, Charlestown is aglow with Christmas lights. We have a spectacular animated light show on the city square between Market and Main Cross Streets on Main. Greenway park houses a 50’ Christmas Tree and lights everywhere. Travel north on Market Street and turn left onto Park Street to find the Family Activities Park where the Charlestown Express Choo-Choo Train departs to take you on a trip around the city. There is skating at the Family Activities Park, too. Santa is there on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays during much of December. There is a mini-golf course, and there are concessions available.
