Lobster Pot Tree Lighting

For 15 consecutive years, Provincetown artist Julian Popko and his family have built a unique lobster pot tree in the heart of Provincetown’s Lopes Square. The tradition began in 2004 as a tribute to the hard-working lobstermen of Provincetown, and now the two-story tree has become a celebrated seaside tradition. The event begins at 5:30pm.

 

Stacked with over 112 real lobster pots borrowed from local lobstermen, along with dozens of bows, buoys, plastic lobsters. and thousands of LED lights, the festive tree is a bright and colorful addition to the heart of Lopes Square. The tree rises up over two stories and is lit with thousands of holiday lights. The lighting takes place on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend, and cookies and hot cocoa are served. The crowd counts down as the giant tree topper is lifted and then lowered onto the tall “tree.”

 

The event is part of the launch of the holiday season and was featured in the Smithsonian Magazine’s article “Seven Places Reinventing the Christmas Tree.”
