Mr. Boombastic himself, Shaggy is due to welcome Nova Scotia’s Christmas tree to the Boston Common with a musical performance this Thursday, December 3.
Shaggy will be joined by Nova Scotia’s Barra MacNeils, Sarah and Elizabeth MacInnis, and Jenny MacKenzie. Boston Gay Men’s Chorus, Nicholas Christopher from the musical Hamilton and the world famous Boston Pops will also take the stage.
“This year’s celebration reminds us of the importance of working together when we face difficult challenges,” Boston’s Mayor, Marty Walsh said.
“As Boston helped Nova Scotia in 1917, the City and our residents must partner to keep each other safe and healthy from the COVID-19 pandemic. I want to thank our friends in Nova Scotia for the Boston Common tree, and I’m grateful we are still able to celebrate the holiday season virtually.”
You can watch the show on Boston WCVB-TV, which is found on Bell Aliant at channel 11 and 411. It’s located on Eastlink at channels 31 and 620.
The annual Christmas tree gift, which normally travels by truck, travelled to Boston this year by container ship due to the pandemic. Nova Scotia’s gift to the City of Boston was cut on Heather and Tony Sampson’s property in West Bay, Cape Breton.
