Photos from Saturday evening’s tree lighting event, including several of Traci Thayne Corbett, Art Haven’s director, and her super helpers Lily and Cee Cee. Traci is the person who helps the kids in creating all the fabulous hand painted buoys that adorn the tree.
Tremendous thanks and huge shout outs to David Brooks, Shawn Henry, Traci Corbett, Warren Waugh, Cape Ann Art Haven, Three Lantern Marine Fishing, Great Marsh Brewing Co, Gloucester Fire Department, the City of Gloucester, and to all the great people volunteering their time and money towards continuing this fabulous and uniquely Gloucester tradition ❤
WONDERFUL FUN AT THE LOBSTER TRAP TREE LIGHTING TONIGHT!
Check out the new starry, starry night interior lights ❤ Posting more photos tomorrow.
The polling has shown fairly consistently that approximately 60 percent are in favor of multi-colored lights and 40 percent favor warm white lights.
The final number as of 6pm tonight is that of the 1,605 people who participated, 58.75 percent voted for multi-colored lights and 39.31 percent voted for warm white lights (1.9 percent voted for other).
Thank you so much to Everyone for voting!!!
It’s that time of year when the awesome David Brooks and Crew are once again constructing Gloucester’s famous and fabulous Lobster Trap Tree. Friday morning, the base of the tree and entrances were laid out and tomorrow, Saturday, construction will be complete. The lights won’t go up for several days.
This year David is leaving it up to the community to vote on whether warm white or multi-colored lights are preferred. The voting ends at 6pm on Tuesday, December 3rd.
Please vote your preference for Gloucester’s unique and beautiful Lobster Trap Tree. Thank you!
Whenever at the Lobster Trap Tree to take a photo or passing by, there is a steady stream of people–families, couples, and groups of friends–stopping to pose and take snapshots. It’s a Gloucester thing for sure!
The tree will be up most likely though the end of January. David Brooks shares that the time of dismantling is weather dependent however, the BIG BUOY PARTY FAMILY FUN NIGHT is Friday January 25th, so don’t wait too long to take a photo at Gloucester’s beautiful (and the World’s Best) Lobster Trap Tree.
