McKeesport Festival of trees
The Festival of Trees is an annual holiday-themed event hosted by the McKeesport Recreation Board at the Jacob Woll (Main) Pavilion in Renziehausen Park. This year's event is December 1 through 5 from noon to 9 p.m. -- featuring 100 trees decorated by local schools, nonprofits, and businesses. A "sleigh-hayride" shuttles visitors between the McKeesport Garden Club's Garden Center and Arboretum and the McKeesport Regional History and Heritage Center. At the main pavilion, visitors can see live entertainment, write letters to Santa Claus, participate in a scavenger hunt, eat food prepared by McKeesport Area Culinary students, and purchase baked goods to benefit the Semper Fidelis Club. Admission is $2. Children are admitted at no charge with the donation of a non-perishable food item.
