There is fun for all ages at Holiday Trees in Peterborough, where each unique tree displays the imaginative flair of its donor. In addition to enjoying the details on each tree and voting for your favorites, there will be a kids' iSpy game, visits from Santa, raffles and free baked goods. The event is free and all donations will benefit the Peterborough Community Center (PCC) for future upgrades.
Anyone from any town may enter a decorated tree and there is no cost to participate. Please read the invitation for more information:
If you would like to enter a tree, please email Lauren at
