The Festival of Trees

Get out of the cold and stop in at the Whaling Museum on Broad Street to check out the Festival of Trees! The museum is fully decked out in holiday cheer with hundreds of trees decorated by islanders to celebrate the holiday. The museum is open Monday-Saturday from 10am to 4pm and is free for members and island residents. Learn about the island’s whaling history and enjoy the holiday cheer. Keep your eyes peeled for LRE’s Christmas Tree and if you find it, send us a picture!
