If you enjoy free hometown entertainment, delicious bake sale treats and possibly bringing home an already-decorated and fanciful Christmas tree, then plan on attending the annual Hurricane Valley Christmas Tree Festival opening Nov. 29 at the Hurricane City Community Center, 63 S. 100 W.
This delightful 30-year tradition, sponsored by Hurricane City, opens at 5 p.m. on Nov. 29 with a spectacular Christmas tree lighting ceremony and celebration of the holiday spirit.
Dozens of beautiful Christmas trees decorated by members of the community will be on display at the festival. Uniquely themed Christmas trees, decorated and donated by area businesses, will be available for sale through a silent auction.
A craft boutique and gigantic bake sale gives shoppers an opportunity to pick up an early gift or treat to take home. Visitors can stroll though a dazzling display of holiday quilts and enjoy continuous entertainment provided by local singers, dancers and musicians.
Children will find it hard to wait for Saturday morning on Dec. 1 when Santa Claus arrives to share a delicious holiday breakfast with some of his littlest fans.
The Hurricane Valley Christmas Tree Festival is a free community event presented as a gift from Hurricane City to area residents. All proceeds from the bake sale, raffles and auctions will be donated to the “Coins for Kids” program to benefit local children whose families are struggling this holiday season.
