About the Event

United States

From the event organizer:

Time to light things up Somerville! This year, Illuminations will be a month-long lights extravaganza in which the public is able to take self-guided tours of decked-out houses any time they like! Using our handy map, it will be easy to cruise around and see the best lights in town.

We will kick off Illuminations month on Thursday, Dec. 9th - with caroling around town between 6 8pm. The same night we will kick off the Illuminations map. Let's celebrate the folk artistry and creativity of residents and businesses that transform their spaces and yards with lights, ornaments, and shrines of devotion and fantasy —and song!

Timeline for Illuminations:

  • Dec. 9 through early January 2022: Self-guided tours using the SAC’s
  • official online Illuminations Map
  • Dec. 9: Illuminations kick off with city-wide caroling!
  • Dec. 11: Community Lantern project
  • Dec. 18: Illuminations Bike Tour (RD Dec 19)
