2nd Annual Festival of Trees

| November 5, 2013

We are excited to announce the 2nd annual Fox Creek Chamber of Commerce Festival of Trees, to be held 28 and 29 November 2013, at Fox Creek Community Hall.


Companies and individuals specialized trees to their unique style and company colours.

You are invited to design and decorate a tree, wreath, centrepiece, or porch display, which will be made available for viewing on Family Night, Thursday, and for purchase by silent auction at the gala on Friday.

We welcome trees decorated by colour or theme, so please exercise your creativity.  With your help, we will transform the hall into an enchanted, magical Christmas forest.

The hall will be open for viewing on Family Night from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.  Hot dogs and hot chocolate will be available to tame hungry tummies, and kiddies will have the opportunity to have their picture taken with Santa himself. How cool is that?

There is no admission charge for Family Night, and visitors are encouraged to bring a donation for the Food Bank.

Friday night’s formal gala event will begin with cocktails and viewing of trees at 6:00 p.m.  Supper will be served at 7:00 p.m.  Guests will dine among the beautifully decorated trees.  Silent auction bid sheets will be available throughout the evening, and a dance will follow.  Tickets are available at a cost of $40 each.  Please call the Chamber office at (780) 622-2670 to reserve yours.

Please consider celebrating the season with us by donating a tree, wreath, centrepiece, or porch display, decorated in your own unique design.  Our elves are busy this time of year, but could create a tree for you, should you be unable to do it yourself.

Of course, we welcome all levels of participation, so please speak with our Head Elves, Cathy Wiltse, (780) 622-7422, and Diane Ahn, (780) 622-7773.

We look forward to celebrating the season with you.проверить позиции сайта
