Let it Shine!
The Annual Lighting of the Pilgrim Monument, which celebrates the Pilgrims’ First Landing in the New World in Provincetown on November 11, 1620, is one of Cape Cod’s most beautiful traditions and one that is supported by PMPM’s members and friends.
The 2015 lighting ceremony took place on November 25, 2015 from 5-7pm at the Pilgrim Monument & Provincetown Museum(PMPM) and honored Provincetown’s Schoolchildren – Past & Present. Guests heard from the School Chorus and watched as they “threw the switch” to light the Monument in a salute to our most precious and promising resource!
This year almost 1500 people came to this iconic event to witness the Monument festooned with more than 3,100 “landing lights” which shine nightly through January 5 of the following year. Admission is free, and refreshments were provided by the Provincetown Stop & Shop/Provincetown Business Guild with entertainment by John Thomas and Chris Racine.
