It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Buttonwoods! The Haverhill museum will play host to its 2017 Festival of Trees starting on Friday, Nov. 24 and running through Dec. 8.

The two-week event features a variety of trees, wreaths and centerpieces decorated and donated by city residents to be raffled off. This year’s proceeds will go to maintaining the museum and supplying educational programs to the greater Haverhill community.

A gala night event on Saturday, Nov. 25 will include entertainment from Voices of Hope, food prepared by local chefs and a silent auction.

Tickets for the gala are $20. Admission for the rest of the event is $7 for adults, $5 for seniors and $3 for children.

Buttonwoods Museum is located at 240 Water St., Haverhill.
