Marlborough – When the sixth annual Metrowest Festival of Trees was held Dec. 13, 14 and 15, it returned for the second year at the 47,500-square-foot Royal Plaza Trade Center. In addition to wreaths, nearly 100 decorated trees from two- to 7-1/2 feet were sponsored by businesses, organizations and community leaders. Many guests purchased raffle tickets for a chance to win their favorite entries.
Among other popular attractions were Santa's Village with Bob LeDuc of Wooden Toys & Crafts, and Candy Land with nostalgic treats provided by Wayside Country Store. The festivities also included crafts, live entertainment, children's amusements and visits from Santa.
The holiday event is co-produced by the Marlborough Historical Society and Olde Marlborough, Inc. Proceeds benefit historical programs and activities in the Metrowest area.
