According to a news release sent to 22News, Holiday in the Park will run weekends and select days from Saturday, November 23 through Wednesday, January 1, 2020.
The festival will kick off with the largest Holiday Toy Drive in New England. Guests are invited to donate a new and unwrapped toy valued at $25 or more in exchange for a free ticket to Holiday in the Park.

These toys are going to be given to the families and sometimes these are some of the few toys the families are actually going to give their kids for Christmas.”Donna Sittard, YMCA of Greater Springfield
