As Rockport prepares for the community’s annual Christmas in Rockport celebration, the Rockport Department of Public Works is also working to find the perfect evergreen tree to place in Dock Square. They are inviting any Cape Ann homeowner with a suitable tree (approximately 35 feet in height) to contact the DPW office at 978-546-3525 as soon as possible. Representatives of the DPW will select the most appropriate tree from among those offered, then work with the property owner to remove the tree and prepare it for its new home in Dock Square celebrating Christmas in Rockport 2019. This year’s annual Rockport Tree Lighting Ceremony will take place in Dock Square on Saturday, December 7, beginning at 4 PM. Once again Santa will be arriving in Rockport by lobster boat, landing at T-Wharf at approximately 1 PM.
