The annual holiday display of trees and decorations begins November 14 with tours through January 6.

Roberson Executive Director Michael Grasso says he’s excited for his second year as the Front Street, Binghamton museum’s head for the opportunity to show off the trees celebrating the community’s ethnic diversity, the displays and decorations stretching the imaginations of local designers and the public and even a little bit of sorcery to highlight the magic of the season.
