Thank You to our Sponsors

WE'RE ON THE HUNT FOR THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS TREE!

Help us find the perfect tree to brighten the 2020 holiday season in Downtown Mystic CT - Mystic River Park! The tree should be local, easily-accessible, 25-30-feet and perfectly-symmetrical.

As always, we're so thankful for the help of Jeff, Jennifer & Crew at Mystic Shipyard, and others like Gerry Leger, Austin Shirley & Connor McCarthy of Noank Electric LLC and Dean from Coastal Roll-Off Services.

Call our Chrismas Tree Tipline @ (860)572-9578 or email PeggyRoberts@mysticchamber.org with details.

This annual tradition is one of our favorites. After an extensive search for the perfect Christmas tree, it is lit for the season at this event and will remain in Mystic River Park to be enjoyed by residents and visitors alike throughout the holiday season.

LIGHTED BOAT PARADES OF YEARS PAST

COVID strikes again! We're sad to share that this year's Santa Arrives by Tugboat and Holiday Lighted Boat Parade is postponed for 2020 and will resume in 2021. Meanwhile, we're spreading some holiday cheer ahead of the season with this special compilation of previous Lighted Boat Parade events. Special thanks to Greg Gilmartin, MYS-TV Studios. Enjoy!
