19th Annual Festival of Trees returns to MassMutual Center

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – It’s been 19 years since the Springfield Boys & Girls Club first started attracting large crowds with its Festival of Trees.

Crowds continued Saturday, the second day of the Festival of Trees hosted by the MassMutual Center.

The decorated trees are donated by companies and individuals. They’ll be raffled off on December 15 at the conclusion of the long-running festival.

Tammy Kasperowski and her family have been trying to win one of the decorated Christmas trees for the past 10 years, and she’s not giving up.

“Each tree has a different beauty to it,” she told 22News. “Underneath the tree, or on the tree is just amazing and the work that is put into each and every tree.”

The thousands of dollars raised during the Festival of Trees goes towards supporting a variety of children’s programs provided each year by the Boys & Girls Club.
