One lucky winner at home with her tree!

Anyone¬†can enter a tree ūü饬†in the Festival. Many trees are entered to honor loved ones who have died. All trees help to raise funds to battle cancer. Last year there were¬†almost 100 beautifully decorated, artificial Christmas trees. Each had its own unique and often untraditional theme. Trees must be at least 3 feet tall. Trees of a less traditional nature are encouraged.
