New Bedford cancels Clasky Common Park lighting, downtown holiday events still a go



Hi New Bedford! We’re expecting some rough weather Sunday night with strong wind and rain, so after discussing it with other stakeholders, we’re all in agreement that, for everyone’s safety, Sunday’s holiday lighting ceremony at Clasky Common is cancelled.

We will be turning the display on this weekend so residents and visitors can enjoy it through the season, but there will be no ceremony Sunday evening. The weather looks good on Saturday evening, so please join us downtown at 5 p.m. for the annual Downtown Tree Lighting.

Saturday’s celebration will have the annual parade up William Street, hot chocolate, a sing-along with New Bedford Festival Theatre, the tree-lighting, and a visit from Santa himself. We hope to see you there.”-City of New Bedford.
