Bowen's Wharf, 53 America's Cup Avenue. It's the most wonderful time of the year—twinkling lights, fragrant wintergreens, beautiful bows, and a most amazing Christmas tree on historic Bowen's Wharf. Around 12:30pm Santa and Mrs. Claus motor into Bowen's Basin by boat (weather permitting) eager to listen to every child's wish. Come early for leisurely holiday shopping and stay through the evening as festivities begin around 4:30pm with local musicians taking the stage and leading a carol sing-along. The enormous tree is lit promptly at 6pm—the official beginning of the holiday season at Bowen's Wharf! Bowen's Wharf restaurants remain open for holiday meals and many shops offer sweet refreshments. FREE ADMISSION! Festivities held rain or shine.
