SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – You’re running out of time if you want to visit the Festival of Trees at the MassMutual Center. Sunday is the last day for the annual display.
The 22nd Annual Festival of Trees is a local seasonal favorite. The sights and sounds of the season are on full display for 17 days with nearly 140 decorated trees this year! These trees are donated and decorated by area businesses, organizations, families and individuals. And then raffled off to benefit The Springfield Boys & Girls Club and its community initiatives.
“People love to come here it outs them in the Christmas spirit and it gets them ready for the holidays so we’re happy to be doing this we’ve been doing it 22Years and Springfield is jsut so generous everybody comes out,” Vincent Borello Executive Director Springfield Boys & Girls Club.
“The festival of trees is a fundraiser for the Springfield Boys & Girls club but it’s outreach is far more than that because it is a community event. We welcome 20,000 people through our doors over the course of the 17 days we’re here. So it really has turned into something that the community enjoys coming to,” said Stacy Magiera Festival of Trees Chairwoman.
These trees will wind up in the homes of 138 fortunate families. The director of the Springfield Boys and Girls Club said that all winners will be contacted over the phone before the end of the day.
