TreeFest, in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, begins with the area Christmas tree growers who donate over a hundred live trees to be trimmed. Then, hundreds of people from community volunteers and youth groups, to florists and garden clubs set up and decorate the rooms and trees which are each sponsored by an area business or individual.
Throughout the event, local entertainment is provided, from school choirs to dance groups and folk musicians performing in front of a seasonal mural. Adding to the holiday atmosphere, visitors will be able to start their Christmas shopping with the dozens of professional craft artisans displaying their wares for sale, a gingerbread house contest and a special Chinese auction. You may be the lucky winner of our quilt raffle.
This year at TreeFest a raffle will be held for a quilt measuring 46 x 52. The quilt is entitled " Stars in Bloom" and made by Quilters in Bloom. Tickets will be sold during the six days of TreeFest. The cost is $1.00 per
ticket or 6 tickets for $5.00. The drawing will take place at 5:00 on
December 29, 2012.
At the conclusion of activities, the trees are donated to area families in need, as identified by local social service agencies.
