Welcome to Charlestown: Christmas City!

While things look a little different this year, we hope that our annual light show brings a bit of cheer to our Charlestown families and valued visitors. Please note that Ice Skating and visits with Santa, the Winterwald Holiday Market, as well as Carriage and Charlestown Express train rides are unfortunately cancelled this year due to COVID-19. We look forward to returning to these beloved holiday traditions next year. 

Please check back again regularly for new features and information! The light show on the Charlestown Square and in Greenway park are now open and will run nightly from dusk to 11:00 pm. Tune in to 87.9 FM, and be sure to tag us in your photos or use the hashtag #CharlestownChristmas2020!
