A special thank you to grandbridge energy logo for sponsoring our 2023 event. 

This modern twist on caroling is held in more than 26 cities around the world. All ages will enjoy walking through downtown Cambridge with thousands of participants as you interact and enjoy interactive light installations and live  LED performers that will be along the route. 

Please note, some lighting used may be disruptive to people who are sensitive to light.

The music of Phil Kline will be played through speaker stations on the route.  We welcome you to listen or play on your own devices too.  You can download the music here

Relive the magic with videos from past years:  2016 video and a 2019 video.
