The newly constructed Hancock-Adams Common (it was dedicated in Sep. of this year) is home to one of the most festive holiday displays.

The Hancock-Adams Common, named after two of the more prominent residents of Quincy (technically John Hancock was born in what was then known as Braintree but it was later incorporated into what is now known as Quincy).  At the north end of the display is John Adams

John Hancock is located at the south part of the display, closer to Quincy Center (or as it is now being called The New Quincy Center)

The center piece of the display is the 60 foot tree.

But the Santa, nutcracker and snowman are all a very close second.

Speaking of Santa, these two Santa Clauses took some time away from the North Pole to check out the display.

Thousands of lights illuminate the common.

The trees reflection so pretty in the gazing ball at City Hall.

The 174 year old Quincy City Hall was also dressed up for the holidays.

The Christmas light display is dog friendly.  Al, a 2 year old English Bulldog posed in front of the tree for me.
