It’s that time of year again! We’ve got Santa on his way, Gingerbread Houses being delivered to the Salem Museum, wood being delivered for the Marshmallow Roast, cookies baking for decorating, and lots of holiday entertainment!

All that’s missing is You and your beautiful creation!

The festival will be held in Longwood Park on December 2nd from 10 AM to 2 PM.
