The festival runs from Friday, Nov. 29 through Dec. 15 at Elm Bank's Hunnewell building, located at 900 Washington St. in Wellesley.

The tree display will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays. The exhibit costs $8 for adults, and is free for kids under 12 years old.

Last year’s festival event drew hundreds of people every day, and saw more than 3,000 during its two-week run, according to event organizers.

This year, special activities like horse-drawn hayrides, Santa visits, Christmas pajama storytime, and workshops on gardening, wreath-making and ornament crafting will be held sporadically throughout the next several weeks to celebrate the festival.

Visit the organization's website for more information and a full list of the festival's additional activities.
