As in years past, this year’s production will include a traditional tavern dance, a sweet treat, a horse-and-carriage ride, and a visit from St. Nicholas. Performances are Nov. 29, Dec. 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 21, 26 and 27. Tours begin at 5 p.m. and leave every 15 minutes.
Advance reservations are strongly recommended for all Lantern Light Tours. Tickets are $30 for adults ($25 for Seaport members) and $23 for children ages 5-17 ($18 for youth members). Tours are not recommended for children under 4.
