Matt Damon was spotted in Belmont on Sunday picking out a Christmas tree at the Lions Club tree and wreath sale, Wicked Local Belmont first reported.

The actor and Cambridge native was seen shopping with his nephew and brother, Kyle Damon, who is a regular at the sale, according to Lions Club publicity chairman Ken Krilla. Damon posed with a few fans and Lions Club members, including Krilla.

“It’s great to have a star sighting,” Krilla told, adding that Damon didn’t stick out among the lot’s other customers. “He treated us the same; we treated him the same.”


The tree sale is one of the Lions Club’s largest annual fundraisers, benefiting local charities to support the blind and visually impaired. The sale is located at 1 Common St. in Belmont.
