Grrr...not ba humbug..just frustrated with lack of effort from the FOT powers that be every year.

A truly great way of kicking off the Holiday Season! We try to attend at least every other year - watching children, when they first get to see all these Christmas trees is simply precious! There always are other exhibits to admire also, for example decorated gingerbread houses - it's a delightful way of getting into the spirit of the... More

The concept is that people and groups decorate Christmas trees, and what a great variety are created by people who are very creative and others who are not. The ginger bread houses were a nice side exhibit. Great place to do some shopping for really unusual and sometimes unique items.

The River Center hall is filled with Christmas trees and wreaths decorated by local businesses, groups and individuals who compete for prizes. The trees and wreaths are raffled off at the end of the show to those who purchase special raffle tickets.... More

The festival is nice, but its the same thing every year- trees. They charge admission if your child performs there - that is probably the main source of revenue.

I wanted to bring my mother to see it again this year. In the years past, she had been a regular contributor and was happy to see it again. Will be back. She (we) had a great time.

We go every year to see all of the decorations and there is a kids play area that is fantastic for the little ones! Santa is there every day for pictures as well.

The FOT is great family fun. The lights and decorations are fun for the kids to see. The train display is always a hit. The raffle tickets are well priced. Deifnitely a yearly family tradition at Thanksgiving time.
