22nd Annual Trick or Treat

October 2, 2017 Dear Friends, Brighton Main Streets and the Brighton Board of Trade will once again sponsor the 22nd Annual Trick or Treat with the businesses, in partnership with Boston College and Boston Police Station D14 (Allston-Brighton). This event has been extremely successful and is growing in numbers each year. The concept is simple…local neighborhood children will go to each business that displays the orange “trick or treat” sign (enclosed) from 3 PM to 5 PM on Tuesday, October 31st. The Halloween route is from Police Station D14 down Washington St. heading towards Oak Square. A Pizza Party will follow at 5 PM at the Oak Square YMCA. We are encouraging businesses to decorate their storefronts for Halloween! Be festive and have fun dressing up your store and yourself for the holiday. Parents accompany the children and this is a great opportunity for each and every business owner to get to meet the families in the neighborhood and for the families to get to know you, our local business owner. Enclosed you will find the orange “Welcome Trick or Treater” flyer to be displayed on your window if you wish to participate. Boston Police D14 will be helping to direct traffic and crossing the children at the major intersections and we have volunteers from Boston College to help as well. If you have any questions please contact Liz Sullivan at 617-779-9200 or brightonmainstreets@gmail.com Sincerely, Norman O’Grady, President Brighton Board of Trade Elizabeth Sullivan, Executive Director Brighton Main...

Holiday Lights Sponsorships

The Brighton Board of Trade is proud to uphold the time-honored tradition of sponsoring the holiday lights across the Brighton Business District. Every holiday season, from late November into the new year, the main streets of Brighton are aglow with beautiful lights that enhance the beauty of our business district, improving the appearance of our community while drawing in shoppers to our local stores and shops. Brighton Board of Trade members make this possible through their generous sponsorship, and each participating sponsor is recognized with a gorgeous banner that is prominently displayed in our main business corridor. The Brighton Board of Trade is thrilled to announce sponsorship opportunities for the 2017 Holiday Lights in the Brighton Business district! Join in the time-honored tradition of lighting up our business community for the holiday season by becoming a 2017 Lights sponsor.
