Retailers at Faneuil Hall Marketplace are looking to amp up holiday excitement with Blink!, a six-week light-and-sound show featuring the Boston Pops, the Faneuil Hall Marketplace Merchants Association said Friday.
With 350,000 LED lights and an 85-foot Christmas tree, the plan is to transform the area into “a must-visit destination” for holiday shoppers, the association said.
Blink! is set to launch Nov. 17, and nightly shows will begin at 4:30 p.m. and take place on the half hour with the last show ending at 10 p.m. Blink! will run through Dec. 31.
The merchants say this will be an energy-efficient light-and-sound show.
“The entire six-week show uses the same amount of electricity as the average American household,” the association said in a press release.
The show is in partnership with Mayor Thomas M. Menino, Arts Boston, and the Greater Boston Visitors and Convention Bureau, the association said.
