Beer garden weather may have ended, but The Anchor, a wine and beer garden that debuted in Charlestown in May, is reopening for six days of holiday festivities.
On Dec. 13–15 and Dec. 20–22, the two-story waterfront space will remake itself into a holiday destination, complete with menorah and tree lightings, music and dance performances, Santa-themed fitness classes, art exhibitions, and a holiday retail market on Saturdays and Sundays from noon–4 p.m. Holiday film classics will be shown throughout the garden’s run, and between taking photos with Santa and stopping by the professional Christmas card station, there will be plenty of opportunities to capture your own season’s greetings.
To stave off the outdoor elements, The Anchor will provide outdoor heat lamps and blankets and, in addition to their usual craft beer and wine lineup, a selection of warm holiday drinks: tea, coffee, mulled wine, and sangria, as well as a hot cocoa and hot cider bar. For sustenance, a s’mores bar and waffle bar will be on hand, along with a handful of other baked holiday goods.
For any children attending The Anchor’s holiday garden, there will be balloon twisting, cookie decorating, a “Hollidogs” costume contest, and a children’s holiday story reading by Boston Police Commissioner Willie Gross.
The Anchor; 1 Shipyard Park, Boston; Dec. 13–Dec. 15 and Dec. 20–22, Fridays from 4 p.m.–11 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays from noon–11 p.m.; theanchorboston.com
