Mayor Michael Cherepko and the McKeesport Recreation Board will present the 2023 Festival of Trees from noon to 9 p.m. on Thursday, December 7, through Monday, December 11, in the Jacob Woll (Main) Pavilion in Renziehausen Park.
Each year, Mayor Cherepko describes the Festival of Trees as a great way to spread holiday cheer while being active in the McKeesport community.
“The Festival of Trees is a beautiful event,” Cherepko said. “Not only does it bring McKeesporters together in celebration of the holiday spirit, but it allows each of our local organizations, student clubs, churches, and other participating groups to share their mission and creativity with our community.”
Concessions, prepared by Auberle's culinary students, will include a variety of soups, sandwiches, hot cocoa, and more. The Semper Fidelis Club of McKeesport will conduct a bake sale.
A schedule for Hayrides, Visits with Santa Claus, Hot Cocoa Happy Hour, and more will be released soon.
Visitors are encouraged to head across the park to the McKeesport Regional History & Heritage Center and the Garden Club of McKeesport for additional activities and holiday sales.
