Smolak Farms Annual Tree Lighting Festival
November 27, 2010
Lights will Sparkle at Smolak Farms
Smolak Farms Hosts Annual Tree Lighting Festival with Activities for the Entire Family!
There are few places that conjure up as much holiday spirit as Smolak Farms, the charming 300+ year-old farm located just north of Boston, MA. Between the smell of fresh-from-the-oven baked goods and hot cocoa, twinkling lights, array of homemade gingerbread houses and the buzz of holiday cheer, there’s no better place south of the North Pole to celebrate the holidays. This year the tradition continues when Smolak Farms kicks off the holiday season with their annual Tree Lighting Festival on Saturday, November 27, 2010, from 11:00AM to 5:00PM.
The day will be filled with seasonal treats and activities for kids of all ages. From 9:00AM to 5:00PM, families are invited to peruse thousands of Smolak Farms’ pre-cut Christmas trees. With the selection of trees including Fraser and Balsam Fir, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect tree for your annual star topper while bringing that pine scent into your home. Since the holiday season is all about giving, Smolak Farms will be spreading the cheer to Toys for Tots. If you bring in a new unwrapped toy, valued at $10 or more, to donate to Toys for Tots, you will receive 25% off of your Christmas tree purchase (on November 27th only).
In addition to the pre-cut trees, Smolak Farms also has a wide variety of “Choose and Cut” trees to choose from throughout the farm. Varieties include; Fraser Fir, Balsam Fir, Douglas Fir, Concolor Fir and a few minor varieties. Choose and Cut trees is open from 9:00am - 3:00pm
While you search for the perfect Christmas tree, sip and savor the tastes of the season with complimentary hot cocoa, served all day long. After you’ve found that perfect tree, choose from an assortment of wreaths, holiday gifts, gingerbread houses, decorations and baked goods while children partake in a day full of activities including: wreath making, cookie demonstrations; caroling, holiday crafts, and coloring books! (Please see a full schedule of activities below.) Guests can also enter to win a free gingerbread house!
Throughout the afternoon, Christmas music will be playing the sounds of holiday cheer, and all visitors are invited to board the Smolak Express Train from 11:00AM to 3:00PM for a special ride throughout the farm with Mrs. Claus herself! At 4:30PM everyone will gather around Smolak Farms’ very own Christmas tree when Santa Claus makes a very special appearance for the annual tree lighting.
