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 26th, 2011, from 10:00AM to 5:00PM.
The day will be filled with seasonal treats and activities for kids of all ages. From 10:00AM 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.

At 4:30PM everyone will gather around Smolak Farms’ very own Christmas tree with a free cup of delicious hot cocoa when Santa Claus makes a very special appearance for the annual tree lighting.
