Rockport Christmas Lighting Of The Gate

Many residents looked in wonder when the lights came on during the Rockport Lighting of the Gate on Sunday, December 4th, 2011. Sponsored by the Rockport Development Group, the Group invited everyone "to join us in our celebration as we "Light Up the Gate", and "we will be caroling throughout the village as well as at the Church of the Redeemer where hot chocolate will be served". The historic West Gate in the Village of Rockport crashed to the ground on April 28th, 2011 but has been repaired and once again stands ready to welcome visitors.
