Join us Tonight for the Lighting of the Trees Ceremony

Join us tonight at the Art Museum for the Lighting of the Trees Ceremony! This event will be between 6 and 8 pm and is free and open to the public. There are 30 decorated trees this year in the Festival of Trees, each on decorated by a community group or organization. In addition to the trees, there are 9 pedestal items, including holiday decorations and wreathes, also donated by members of the community. All of these items are up for auction, which kicks off tonight and runs until Saturday, December 4th, when it closes at 2:30 pm. All proceeds from the auction will benefit museum programs.

The Lighting of the Trees Ceremony and Reception will feature musical performances to get you in the holiday spirit! Brownies, punch, and hot cider will also be available. This night of festivities is a great way to preview the trees, be the first to place a bid, and to vote for the People's Choice Award. Begun last year and only open to voting tonight, this fun award is a great way for the community to acknowledge the tree that they like the best!

Please join us tonight for an evening of artwork, music, and holiday cheer!

For more information, please call 307.766.6622.
