New England is a wonderful place to be during the holiday season. Our quaint towns and big cities all have great events to bring people together.
If you enjoy going out to watch a tree lighting, attend a craft fair or take in Christmas play, here are some special local places to bring the whole family.
The National Shrine of our Lady of La Salette’s in Attleboro begins its yearly Festival of Lights that are on display into the new year. A stunning display of lights along with choirs, Nativity scene and hay rides with cocoa. Your donation goes directly to the Shrine and helps maintain programs including their weekly soup kitchen.

The Enchanted Village, Avon, Jordan’s Furniture. Go back in time as you walk through the restored, vintage Christmas village, rescued by Jordan’s Furniture in 2009. You will not find another one like this anywhere. Adults will love remembering its days in Jordan Marsh’s windows and kids will love the unexpected snowfall. Entry into the Enchanted Village is free but donations are welcome for upkeep of this long time family tradition. http://www.jordans.com/attractions/enchanted-village
Edaville Family Theme Park, Festival of Lights. Enjoy unlimited train rides through 7 million dazzling lights around the cranberry bogs of Carver. For over 40 years families have enjoyed the Vintage trains at Edaville and watched it grow into a theme park with rides, games and festive food. Mass. residents can take advantage of discounted ticket prices as a thank you from the park for the generations of families that continue to come every year.
Happy Holidays to you and yours!
