Festival of Trees After Dark @ Berkshire Museum | Pittsfield | Massachusetts | United States

Discover Festival of Trees 2018: Often Heard after hours, when the twinkling lights are ablaze on every tree but the galleries are dark. The indoor forest of imaginatively decorated trees festooned with musical motifs offer a dreamy atmosphere during evening hours, and guessing the song title that matches each tree’s décor becomes more of a challenge at night!
