Chain of Lights
A Quintessential Small Town Christmas Celebration
Each year Central Massachusetts welcomes visitors to the annual Sutton Chain of Lights! A day long celebration in this quaint town filled with the Christmas spirit, family fun, shopping and an assortment of “old fashioned” New England experiences. The picturesque town center, with its white spire church and Period homes is the starting point for the day. A free Trolley ride is available to transport visitors to the various events. Taking the trolley from stop to stop through the picturesque back roads adds to the ambiance of the day, especially if the trolley riders break into Christmas Carols! Sutton shops, churches, farms, art galleries, school and Historical Society will open their doors with locally made products, food, entertainment and warm hospitality from 10am until 4pm. The day concludes with the lighting of Christmas Trees and caroling on the town Common.
Events at Vaillancourt Folk Art
Returning for their fourth appearance at Vaillancourt Folk Art’s Blaxton Hall for the Annual Chain of Lights celebration (Saturday, December 7, 2013), Rebekah and Sir Harry will be singing and ringing in the holiday season with ukuleles in hand. This New York City duo will be playing some holiday classics with the help of their new friend– the charming and handsome yellow fellow, Good News Gus. Harry has been performing as Gus for the past year spreading sunshine and great news all over the internet.
Also this year, Rebekah and Sir Harry rocked ukuleles all over New York City playing at such venues as their living room, The Sage Theatre, and the New York Ukulele Festival. They volunteer their time and talent to Blissful Bedrooms, a NYC-based organization that provides bedroom makeovers to children with disabilities.
So put your bells on and get ready for a uke-jamming, ring-a-ling, jing-a-ling, good time with Rebekah, Sir Harry, and Good News Gus.
Vaillancourt Folk Art will be open from 9am until 5pm with performances by Rebekah, Sir Harry, and Good News Gus at 11am, 12pm, 1pm, and 2pm.
