Top tips for keeping your kiddos entertained this holiday season.
NHA’S FESTIVAL OF TREES
The Nantucket Historical Association’s Festival of Trees will take place this year. I think we can all agree that it wouldn’t feel like the holidays without this island tradition. This festive winter wonderland will be open to the public from November 27th through December 31st. Generously sponsored by Marine Home Center, Festival of Trees will be free for the community this year. For more information, please visit nha.org.
