This is the third year that the City of Boston will transform the Seaport District into a Winter Wonderland.

Snowport returns to Boston on Friday, November 19. The event is designed to be a hub for holiday happenings, including winter games, a tree market, “Light Up Seaport,” and new to the 2021 season will be a holiday market.

If you feel like taking a trip to the city, here’s what you can expect on your adventure.

Deck the Seaport

The entire district will be decorated for the holiday season. We’re talking thousands of twinkling lights above your head, a 3D wall of presents, and more. This is the perfect Insta-worthy holiday photo op.
