Everett's Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

Everett is such a strong community filled with compassionate and caring people and it really shows during the holiday season. Every year City officials, businesses, and residents alike join together to celebrate Everett’s Tree Lighting Ceremony. The Mayor would like to once again invite everyone to this amazing event on November 30th to enjoy pictures with Santa, sleigh rides, a train ride down Norwood Street, an inflatable snow globe to take pictures in, a giant inflatable winter themed slide, and much more!

The Lights Are On!

September 27, 2018
By Seth Daniel

The last of the cranes on the Encore Boston Harbor site have been taken down, and now the focus of the work has moved inside to the finishes in the rooms and lobby areas.

Greg John, of Encore, said they took down the last of the cranes last week, and it was a signal for work to proceed inside. Cranes have been on site since August 2016, with as many as 16 cranes on site at one time. With the structure topping off early last summer, and the bronze glass curtain now completed, there was no longer any need for cranes on site.
