Looking for some local, socially distanced holiday fun? Grab your mask and head to Thayer Street to shop, eat, stroll and enjoy the beauty of the holiday season.

Thayer Street's Holiday Lights are officially lit. They’re picturesque and great for sharing on social media. Start at the “Seasons Greetings” sign on Thayer and walk down the street, checking out the floating snowflakes above and beautiful holiday displays in the windows of our businesses.
