The Holland Land Office Museum is planning its 16th annual Wonderland of Trees – a holiday tradition that brings more meaning and happiness to the holiday season.

Last year, more than 50 organizations, businesses, schools, children and church groups participated and more than 500 visitors enjoyed viewing the trees, wreaths and holiday décor throughout the museum.

The trees will be on display until Jan. 4. There will also be special events during “Christmas in the City” on Dec. 2.

An opening gala is set for 7 p.m. on Nov. 18 at the museum, 131 W. Main St., Batavia, It will include holiday decorations, food and music plus a premium basket raffle and silent auction.
