The Australian curators of Vivid Sydney’s famous Light Walk and Sydney’s Lights of Christmas, AGB Events, will share their creative expertise with the city of Boston, Massachusetts, delivering a Holiday Season lighting spectacular in conjunction with local organisation Luminartz.
Anthony Bastic, Director of AGB Events and Curator of Vivid Light as part of Vivid Sydney said “We are thrilled to be sharing our creativity and celebrating the magic of the Holiday Season with Boston.” AGB Events are experts in large scale holiday lighting, providing Sydney-siders with the hugely popular Lights of Christmas at St Mary’s Cathedral for the past five years. The Lights of Christmas draws large annual crowds, cementing the event as a modern Christmas tradition in Sydney.

Forming part of Boston’s Holiday Season celebrations and kicking off a new festive tradition for the city, Mayor of Boston, Marty Walsh said; “I am pleased to welcome Anthony Bastic of AGB Events and a taste of Vivid Sydney to Boston.
