We moved to Marblehead in 2008 and did not get to experience the Epiphany tree burning until this annual tradition returned a few years ago. The image of hundreds of Christmas trees being set aflame on January 6th with hundreds of people gathered around was awe inspiring and I’ve tried to capture it from various angles over the years.
This image comes from the 2017 Epiphany tree burning which I chose to view and capture from Redsteps on the corner of Cliff and Chestnut streets.
The 2018 tree burning has been postponed due to arctic cold and thus will take place this year on Monday, January 8, 2018 at 6pm on Riverhead Beach. Don’t miss it!
