Santa’s Arrival and Holiday Tree Lighting

November 24, 2023 @ 5:45 pm - 7:00 pm

A beloved annual tradition, Santa Claus will arrive at the top of the Hawthorne Hotel at 18 Washington Square – with assistance from the Salem Fire Department, of course! Santa’s arrival will be followed by a procession down the Essex Street Pedestrian Mall for the annual lighting of Salem’s Holiday Tree at Lappin Park (next to the Bewitched Statue at the intersection of Essex Street and Washington Street). Santa will arrive promptly at 6pm, so make sure to get there early.
