Festival of Trees
December 1st – 11th, 2020
Join us for our first ever VIRTUAL Festival of Trees!
Here’s how it works:
Participating businesses/organizations/residents will REGISTER and “donate” a tree, decked out with all the trimmings of their choosing! Businesses will display the tree in their place of business, and post photos of it to the event page. Residents will take pictures and/or video and post to our Facebook event page.
For businesses with store-fronts or a physical space open to the public, we’ll invite the community to visit your tree in-person (if so desired).
We’ll ask the community to purchase raffle tickets (for $1 each) for a chance to win their favorite tree(s) or wreath(s). Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Alton Community Services Mrs. Santa Fund. At the end of the event, each of the trees will be given to the raffle winners.
We’ll also ask our community to vote for a “Community Favorite” tree.
At the end of the event, our participating businesses will have made the season brighter, and supported a great local cause.
