Deck the Streets

We are pleased to announce we are back for the holiday season to create a fabulous Holiday Lights map for your viewing pleasure. We would like to invite local families to Deck the Streets with us and help make A-B merry and bright.

We are collecting addresses of those who will be decorating their house this year in a similar fashion as we did for Spooky Streets at Halloween. The same rules will apply, this will be a safe COVID-friendly event from your car as you drive around Acton and Boxborough.

You can add your home address to our google form if you would like to be added to the map:

This is open to anyone in Acton or Boxborough, you do not need to be a member of ABFN.

Timing of this event will be as follows:
- Deadline to let us know if you are decorating your house: December 11th
- Map to be distributed via email by December 16th
- Suggested Viewing of Deck the Streets: December 18th-December 26th

Acton-Boxborough Family Network
(ABFN), based in Acton, Massachusetts, is a non-profit group of local parents working together to increase and improve local resources for families with young children. 

The Acton-Boxborough area is a wonderful place to live, and ABFN is the best way for young families to connect and build a community here and in neighboring towns.
