Here’s how it works:

The ABA Presents the 4th Annual Alton Festival of Trees & Gingerbread House Decorating Contest from December 2-3, 2023
This is for local businesses, organizations & residents who want to get creative with promoting your business and organization in ways you normally couldn’t. Get creative with using items that you sell, themed trees, toys or items that represent your business/organization. This is a fun way to display what your business/organization does and display your community pride! The trees will be raffled off for $1 a ticket.  A display table will be provided for the GINGERBREAD HOUSES and voting categories are youth & adult. 
Here’s how it works:
Participating businesses/organizations/residents will REGISTER and “donate” a tree, decked out with all the trimmings of their choosing! Participants will set up their tree or wreath at the museum.
To REGISTER, please complete our easy online form, 
Deadline to register is 11/29/23!
Entry to this event is FREE, but attendees have the option 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. Tree winners are announced on 12/3 and will be picked up that night or by 12/4.
We’ll also ask our community to vote for a “Community Favorite” tree.
Please note, this event also coincides with the Town of Alton Light Up Night on December 2 from 5-7 pm at Town Hall.
At the end of the event, our participating businesses will have made the season brighter, and supported a great local cause.
This event also includes refreshments, music, a raffle and more… This event is FREE to attend and open to the public. Stay up-to-date by following our Facebook event page or visit our website altonbusinessassociation.com
