Faneuil Hall Marketplace in partnership with Mohegan Sun and Boston's Classic Hits Station, 105.7 WROR announced today, the launch of Summer Blink!, a free, state-of- the- art light and sound extravaganza featuring the song, “Dirty Water,” by The Standells. The show launches Monday, July 15th at 8p.m. and will play nightly through Labor Day Weekend.
“Since Blink was such a success over the holidays last year, we could not wait to start it up again this summer,” said Carol Troxell, Faneuil Hall Merchants Association President. “The summer is our busiest time of year, and thanks to the support from Mohegan Sun and Boston's Classic Hits Station 105.7 WROR, hundreds of thousands of people will get to see the program all season long.”
Nightly light and sound shows will run every 30 minutes from 8p.m.-10:30p.m. in South Market. Blink! will transform every inch of America’s first open Marketplace at Faneuil Hall. This magical and unforgettable light show uses over 350,000 energy efficient LED lights to illuminate Boston’s skyline. The lights dance seamlessly to the music to create a spectacle not to be missed.
To celebrate Blink!, the merchants of Faneuil Hall Marketplace will offer specials during the light and sound show including one free topping on an ice cream at Sprinkles, half off of a Lime Rickey beverage at Boston Pretzel and Lemonade, a free Blink! ring with any purchase at Quincy's Place West End Ice Cream Cart and a free Dick’s Blink! cup with the purchase of ‘Trashcan Punch’ Monday through Thursday from 8p.m.-11p.m. at Dick’s Last Resort.
