The Annual Lighting of the Merry Maple on the Amherst Town Commons. The Amherst BID and Amherst Area Chamber are excited to announce the celebration of the Lighting of the Merry Maple on Friday, from 4:30 to 6 pm. The 50-plus-year-old tradition of lighting a living tree in the North Common was first documented in print in the Amherst Record in 1966. Prior to that a Christmas tree was brought in to be decorated and lit.
