Grand Illumination Night

Martha’s Vineyard Camp Meeting Association, Oak Bluffs, MA

This event has been an annual tradition in Oak Bluffs since 1869, and takes place one night in August. Festivities begin in the Tabernacle, with patriotic band music and a sing-a-long. At a set signal – 1000’s of Chinese paper lanterns are lit at once, around the Tabernacle and hanging from the cottages throughout the grounds. It is a family-friendly event, and magical to view.
