PROVINCETOWN — The annual lighting of the Pilgrim Monument will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 21 from 5 to 7 p.m.

“The lighting ceremony is traditionally held the night before Thanksgiving to commemorate the first landing of the Pilgrims in the New World in Provincetown Harbor in November of 1620. As a beacon of tolerance and hope for over 100 years, the Pilgrim Monument honors those throughout our world who do not enjoy the acceptance and peace we are thankful for,” according to a press release from the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum.
