When: Sat., Nov. 27, 5-7 p.m. 2021
If you believe that the Christmas season doesn’t start until the turkey’s been fully digested, St. Albans has you covered. The 14th annual Festival of Trees kicks off in style with the lighting of the giant Taylor Park Christmas Tree and a festive fireworks show. The fire department keeps crowds warm with a big bonfire, Saint Albans Community Arts and the Festival of Trees committee serve free cider and cookies, and Santa himself makes an appearance on a decked-out fire truck. But the fun doesn’t stop after just one night: Festivities during the next two weeks include a puppet show, a mystery holiday movie and a charity fun run.
