I know that it may be hard to believe, but the 2015 Installation will be happening in just a few short weeks. This year’s event will be taking place at Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Massachusetts. Old Sturbridge Village is a “must-see” New England attraction which depicts an early 19th-century rural Village, featuring costumed historians, antique buildings, water-powered mills, and a working farm.
