Mark your calendars for the annual Roslindale Tree Lighting in Adams Park! The RVMS elves are hard at work preparing for this fun, holiday spirit-fueled event on Saturday, November 25 from 3-5 PM!

Some things to look forward to include visits from Santa and Mayor Michelle Wu, performances from local music and dance groups, ornament decorating, holiday treats, and of course, the "Reindog" costume contest!


Don't forget that it's Small Business Saturday in the Village that day too, so we hope you'll join us in shopping small! 


All are invited to enter the Reindog Costume Contest! Dress your pup up in their holiday best, and feel free to join in on the fun with a costume of your own. You'll parade across the stage, and prizes will be awarded for the best costumes! There is no cost to participate, and no registration in advance. Participants should meet behind the stage at the Tree Lighting promptly by 2:45pm to check in.

Please see below for some important rules and reminders:

  • Our judges may turn participants away if they are not present by 2:45pm

  • Dogs must remain on a leash at all times

  • Winners will be determined by our judges - but remember, this is just for fun!
