The Festival of Trees is a four-day event to create a sense of community with an atmosphere for families to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas – love. Last year we had 50 tree displays in our sanctuary and well over 300 people in attendance and we expect even more this year.
Families, individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations can all be a part of the event. Participants will craft thematically decorated trees for display in one location. Friends and neighbors will walk through our “forest” and see all the various trees, lights and decorations. It’s an opportunity for families to slow down, spend some quality time together doing something that won’t cost a lot of money and celebrate the season together as a family during a busy time of the year.
Participation is free. Just pick a theme and decorate a tree to match your theme. You can use this opportunity to bring your family or employees together and make ornaments. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to buy decorations but instead we encourage you to craft decorations from items you have on hand. Businesses can also decorate a tree using their products or a theme that coordinates with their products. It’s a great venue to get a little free advertising by promoting your product on a tree. Be creative with some construction paper or string popcorn like the old days.
The event opens Thursday, December 5th and Friday, December 6th from 6:00-8:00 pm, Saturday, December 7th from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm and ends Sunday, December 8th from 1:00-6:00 pm. Visit our church that Sunday morning or evening as we will have our worship services in the midst of the trees that weekend. Invite your friends and family to come and vote for their favorite trees. Admission is free. Prizes for the Best Traditional Tree, the Most Creative Tree, People’s Choice Favorite Tree and the Overall Most Votes Favorite will be awarded the following Sunday morning during our regular church service.
There will be other family-friendly activities including food, Caroling and live Christmas music, crafts, holiday photo booth, pictures with Santa and more. We’d love to have a live nativity and petting zoo as donations are made available.
