Paint Nite
The Charles Hotel Annual Tree Lighting Event

Join us on Saturday, November 26th for the Lighting of the Harvard Square Holiday Trees!

This family themed event includes lives performances and a visit from Santa Claus. Warm up with a cup of hot chocolate from Shake Shack and cookies from Henrietta's Table!

We invite families to come around 4:00pm to have their children help decorate the trees. Santa Claus’ Jazz Band will perform at 5:00pm, and then we will light the trees at 5:30pm, followed by a visit from Santa! The performances will continue until 6:30pm, allowing everyone a chance to visit with Santa.

This year's event will help to benefit Cradles to Crayons Massachusetts. Please bring new hats, gloves, and baby coats to donate. Your gift will make a difference in the life of a child this holiday season.

The event is made possible thanks to the support of the Harvard Square Business Association.
