The Lackawanna County “Festival of Trees” exhibit is the first sign that the holiday season is upon us.
The County’s Arts & Culture Department is seeking organizations, schools, community groups, individuals or businesses to sponsor and decorate trees for this very colorful, annual event.
This year’s theme is “A Hollywood Holiday.” The exhibit will open on Friday, December 12, with a gala reception from 5:30 pm to 8 pm at The Electric City Trolley Station & Museum with catering by Accentuate and music by The Mark Montella Band.
The cost to sponsor and decorate a tree is $50 for non profits and small businesses (under 50 employees) and $100 for corporations (over 50 employees). All participants must provide an artificial tree and the decorations. All proceeds will go to Toys For Tots.
Awards will be presented for first, second and third place along with honorable mention and the Peoples’ Choice. The trees will be on display until December 31 during the Trolley Museum’s regular hours of 9 AM to 4 PM Monday – Friday.
The deadline to enter a tree is Friday, December 5. For information or a registration form, contact the museum at 570-963-6590, visit the County’s website at www.lackawannacounty.org, or email email@example.com.
