The Melrose Chamber of Commerce is proud to welcome back Home for the Holidays, a citywide holiday open house that ushers in the holiday season in our community.  This event is generously co-sponsored by Metro Credit Union and The Residence at Melrose Station.

Friday Evening Festivities: 

5:45pm: Join us on the lawn of City Hall for holiday singing with local group! 

6:00pm – 6:15pm: Cheer and Sing as we light the City Hall Christmas Tree! Then stroll down towards the YMCA to await Santa’s arrival. Around 6:30pm: Led by Melrose High School Drummers, Santa Claus will arrive in downtown Melrose atop a Fire Engine! 

Temple Beth Shalom will once again offer delicious latkes (potato pancakes), sufganiyot (donuts) and beverages outside of the Temple from 6:00 -8:00 pm. 

After the trees along Main Street are lit, we hope you will join SANTA at the Knights of Columbus for pictures, hot cocoa, holiday music, and more!

Saturday Fun: All day on Saturday, the city will be full of fairs, performances, sales, specials, The Nutcracker, and all sorts of fun that will last throughout the weekend. Special holiday trolleys will run from 10:00am – 2:00pm, carrying shoppers throughout the shopping districts, for free. The trolleys are made possible by our generous business sponsors.
