Last Thursday while the majority of you were watching The Sound of Music Live I was at the Boston Common Tree Lighting with Rachel and her husband. It was actually my first time going. Glad Rachel is new to town so that it motivates me to play tourist in my own city. But if I'm being completely honest my real motivation for going was because Joey McIntyre (yes, Joey from NKOTB) performed!
Blue Man Group (above), Morning Star Baptist Church Gospel Choir and Boston Celtics official junior dance team LilPhunk (such cute kids and SO talented). There was also a girl from American Idol who I had never heard of and a few other less exciting acts.
Mayor Menino was there for his last tree lighting as mayor. After 20 years of serving as Boston's mayor he will be stepping down in a couple of weeks. He is Boston's longest serving mayor and very well liked here. I was literally standing an arms length from him!
Linking up with Tori!
