Holiday Arts Night and tree lighting in Berlin, Nov. 2

(Nov. 28, 2014) Holiday Arts Night returns to Berlin on Friday, Nov. 28, featuring art sales in downtown shops and restaurants, as well as street vendors, live music and caroling.

The evening will begin with a tree-lighting ceremony at 5:30 p.m. at the Atlantic Hotel, followed by a live ice sculpting demonstration at 6 p.m.

“It is definitely one of the more colorful and upbeat events of the entire year,” Berlin Mayor Gee Williams said. “Topping it off this year with the ice sculpture, I’m very interested to see how that impacts the event. I have never had anyone say they didn’t enjoy it.”

The Worcester County Arts Council, at 6 Jefferson Street, hosts the “Holly-Days” show and sale from 5:30-9 p.m., featuring seasonal arts and fine crafts.

Many other downtown shops and restaurants offer extended hours until 9 p.m.

Williams said he anticipates a bigger-than-usual turnout thanks to Berlin’s “Coolest Small Town” designation.

“I certainly expect it to have some impact,” he said. “It’s affected everything since last spring – everything has seen higher attendance – in some cases a much-higher attendance. With the early cold weather, it feels like Christmas already and I suspect people will be ready to get into the Christmas spirit. I think potentially we’ll have our largest crowd ever.”

Holiday Arts Night is sponsored by Berlin Main Street, the Town of Berlin, the Worcester County Arts Council and the Casino at Ocean Downs.
