Annual Christmas tradition

A great place to purchase gifts as well as decorating ideas. The event offers something for all ages, a real family atmosphere.

If you enjoy looking at Christmas trees, wreaths, decorated mantles, stockings and gingerbread house and more, this is the place to visit. Kids enjoy the children's play area and the balloon parade is enjoyable for all.

This event is something my Family goes to at least once a year. It is very affordable and there is plenty of things to look at and do. You can view local art pieces, christmas trees, & wreaths. Or you can watch local performances (singing, dancing, etc). There is also a place for children to visit santa and play games.... More

The Festival of Trees showcases not only dozens of Christmas Trees, but also door wreaths, mantle scenes, and dioramas of Christmas scenes. There are both traditional and contemporary styles showcased. I have never had a bad time! Some times the talent show leaves something to be desired, but it's an amateur talent show, so you'll have that same times! ;)

I have enjoyed going to the Festival of Trees for years. Great for taking children and looking at trees. Although I dislike the huge crowds, it is fun to go there and see the trees!

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
