Local Fun: Festival of Trees 2011

2008

One of our favorite Christmas traditions is attending the Festival of Trees. Each tree is decorated and donated with a person in mind. People bid on them and all money goes to our local children’s hospital. There are literally hundreds of trees to look at, as well as activities for children, gingerbread displays, entertainment, and food. My favorite part is reading the stories behind each tree. It is so humbling, and the spirit there is amazing! If you haven’t gone before, I highly recommend it!  I can’t wait to see what’s in store for this year!  🙂

Amazing!

The Festival is happening this week November 30 – December 3 (Wed through Sat). Wednesday is family day, which means you can get 6 people in for $15. And Zion’s Bank has tickets for a bit cheaper for the other days. For more info, go here.
