Cupids Come to Christopher Columbus Park

The Friends of Christopher Columbus Park (FOCCP) will celebrate Valentine’s Day by making one of the City’s most kissable places even more romantic. Illuminated heart-holding cupids will grace the north and south ends of the trellis in Christopher Columbus Park during mid-February. FOCCP invites you to the park to see the new red and white cupids, along with the beautiful blue lights on the trellis and the twinkling blue laser lights on the pathway.

“The whimsical cupids will welcome lovers of all ages as they celebrate Valentine’s Day on the Waterfront and North End,” says FOCCP President Joanne Hayes-Rines.  “We love to bring special events to Columbus Park that delight and entertain neighbors and everyone who is lucky enough to visit one of the most romantic and lovely places in Boston.”

Valentine’s Day visitors are invited to tag @foccp in their Columbus Park Valentine’s Day photos. #lovefoccp

FOCCP has been illuminating the trellis since 2002 and this year added twinkling blue laser lights that are a delight for all – especially children — as they walk under the trellis.  “FOCCP is only able to bring special events to the park because of the tremendous support of the membership and businesses,” says Hayes-Rines.  “Our Platinum Level corporate sponsors are CL Properties, NorthEndBoston.com and Sanibel Electrical Corporation.  Gold Level sponsors are Boston Harbor Cruises, Boston Harbor Hotel, Boston PushCart, Capitol One, Joe’s American Bar & Grill, Marriott Long Wharf Boston, and Tia’s Waterfront.”
