Festival of Trees 2016: Berkshire Museum Goes Full Glamour
Amy Krzanik reports from Pittsfield. If you roll out the red carpet, the stars will come. All the big names were out on South Street on Friday, Nov. 18 as Berkshire Museum opened its 2016 Festival of Trees with an annual preview party. Now Playing, this year’s movie-themed exhibit, attracted famous faces from the Berkshires and the literal beyond – Charlie Chaplin and Joan Rivers made special appearances. As always, guests were treated to a first look at the trees as they sipped and snacked. And, because a trip to the movie theater isn’t complete without candy and popcorn, both were offered in abundance. The trees are sponsored by businesses, schools and community groups, and proceeds from the exhibition and opening event go toward the Museum’s 20,000-plus education programs each year. Now Playing will be up until Dec. 31.
The flashbulbs go off for A-listers Kimberly Donoughe, James Campagna, Cassandra Sohn and Alex Sohn as they pose on the step and repeat.
Joanne Keefe and her mother, Rosie Keefe, try to never miss a Festival of Trees; Josie Buzzanco and Bob Pothier.
