After Thanksgiving, we kicked off the holiday season by checking out the Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s Festival of Trees. This annual fundraiser/raffle showcases dozens of decorated trees along with an impressive model railroad display.
You can buy raffle tickets and vote for your favorite tree and a chance to win both the tree and everything offered with it.
This year you needed advance tickets with a time slot to keep groups small. Masks were required.
Tickets also include hot chocolate and s’mores around a fire pit. It’s a great way to get into the holiday spirit and support a local institution.
It takes place at the Society’s headquarters at The Gardens at Elm Bank, 900 Washington Street, Wellesley, MA.
