The Town of Amherst launched the holiday season in a big way over the Nov. 17-18 weekend. Festivities started with a light up in Victoria Square. It was followed by a parade that had a record number and entries. Then Amherst hosted the Tree For Boston, when it made its last stop in the province before heading to the American city. Here is a photo essay commemorating the weekend.

The day after the light up and parade, the Tree for Boston - Nova Scotia's gift to the American city in recognition of the assistance it provided following the Halifax Explosion - made a stop in Amherst.
