What’s the best way to view 8 Nights, 8 Windows?

The beauty of 8 Nights, 8 Windows is that you create your own personal experience.

Here are some tips!

While a few of the windows will be on display all day and night from December 6-14, most will only be lit up after dark—which is the best time to get the full experience! We recommend waiting until dusk (around 4pm), before heading out to see the windows. They will be on view through the night, so you can even go for a nice dinner in the area and take a stroll afterwards.

The windows are all in Boston, centered mainly around the South End and Downtown.
