A new sculpture has been installed in Newburyport along the Clipper City Rail Trail just south of March’s Hill. Joseph Gray’s “Together We Climb” is an 11-foot-tall granite standing stone that has two sets of handprints carved into the top. The stone is from the Belisle Granite Quarry in Hookset, N.H. Gray donated the sculpture to the city of Newburyport after it was on display for a year at the Newburyport Art Association’s Range Light Sculpture Park. Visit the sculptor’s website at www.josephgraysculpture.com.

In time for the holiday season, the Burlington Mall has decked its halls along the theme of Santa’s Winter Wonderlights. More than 50,000 LED lights adorn the mall’s center court skies, and there are “scent stations” throughout the mall redolent of gingerbread cookie, peppermint latte, and evergreen. While exploring, guests will receive complimentary holiday “specs” that turn a single point of light into a snowflake. Families also have the opportunity to take holiday photos with Santa. Burlington Mall’s Santa’s Winter Wonderlights at 75 Middlesex Turnpike will continue until Dec. 24. For more information visit www.simon.com/mall/burlington-mall.
