December 10 | 11am–5pm | Free General Admission
Celebrate the Seaport’s annual neighborhood Chanukah Menorah Lighting at the Seaport Museum with free General Admission and an engaging craft activity for people of all ages.
Aboard the 1885 tall ship Wavertree at Pier 16, families and visitors of all ages are invited to join in the creative fun by crafting your own baggywrinkle, charming maritime-inspired decorations perfect for the holidays, using festive-colored yarn. Baggywrinkle, traditionally made from unraveled ropes, is a ships’ tool used to safeguard sails from damage.
Pop into the Museum galleries and historic ships anytime from 11am–5pm to craft your own baggywrinkle and witness the annual Menorah lighting ceremony on the Heineken Riverdeck at Pier 17, from 3–5pm.
This event is free, but please let us know that you’re coming by registering below.
