In what may have been the wettest Clam Lights kick off in the event’s 19-year history, a little rain couldn’t dampen the holiday spirit.
All festivities continued as planned, with only a slight hiccup in the lighting of the clams. Despite the rain, families walked Gene Coulon Park, lined up by the dozens for horse-drawn wagon rides and caroled to their heart’s content at the north end picnic shelter.
Parking may also have been a bit easier this year, and warmth wasn’t a huge factor with temperatures hovering around the low 50s. The park will remain lit every night through Jan. 1 from 5 to 9 p.m.
Did the weather keep you and your family away, or just make you think twice about bringing the camera?
