An old time tradition returns to Taunton.

Taunton will be launching into the holiday season with their 105th annual "Lights on Festival" this weekend. The Downtown Taunton Foundation & Taunton Business Improvement District will host this beloved event on Saturday, December 1 from 3 to 8 pm. Festivities will include the presentation of the holiday green display, fireworks, and train rides. There will be musical performances by Shane Jones and Company, The Great Escape, and many more. There will be plenty of activities for the kids, including a magician, free snacks, and a mad science show! These activities and more will be taking place all throughout downtown Taunton.

The ceremony will begin at 5 pm, with a speech from Mayor Tom Hoye at 4:30 pm. But be sure to get there early for a good view of this spectacular display of holiday lights!
