News from the Taunton Daily Gazette:
A holiday tradition nearly a century old will continue next Friday when the community gathers for the annual lighting of Taunton Green.
Each December, downtown Taunton is transformed into a massive holiday display, featuring thousands of lights and dozens of larger-than-life decorations and displays. Workers from the city and Taunton Municipal Lighting Plant have spent weeks hanging lights, erecting temporary structures and installing decorations ranging from penguins to Santa Claus.
Anyone attending the Lights On festivities needs to have a button for admission. Buttons are available from Heart of Taunton and select downtown businesses, and cost $6 in advance, or $8 at the gate.
The lighting of Taunton Green dates back to 1914, when downtown merchants came up with the idea to attract people to their stores for holiday shopping. The decorations evolved over the years, and the event grew.
