BARRINTON, N.S. – The Municipality of Barrington’s lobster pot tree has been lit for the season.

A tree lighting ceremony was held the evening of Nov. 23, followed by fireworks.

The tree is constructed with just over 200 recycled lobster traps. Memorial and commemorative buoys decorate the tree, in memory of fishermen who have passed on and in honour of those who continue to make their living on the sea.

The goals of the tree are to provide a sense of beauty, a sense of pride and to serve as a symbol of remembrance and respect for the rich lobster fishing culture and heritage of the area.
