Orlando, Fla. - Tickets
for the Festival of Trees, one of Central Florida's favorite holiday
events, are now on sale. The annual holiday event begins on Saturday,
November 10 and runs through Sunday, November 18.
This is the 26th year for the Festival of Trees.
Each year the Orlando Museum of Art (OMA) is turned into a holiday
wonderland, with extravagant Christmas trees and holiday scenes.
Organized by the Council of 101, the event serves as a major fundraiser
for the OMA.
Dozens of Central Florida
business and individuals sponsor trees and are responsible for their
decadent decorations and displays. The trees are available for purchase
throughout the entire event. Festival of Trees has raised more than $5
million for OMA since it began in 1986; last year's event resulted in a
donation of $285,000!
New for 2012
This year's theme is Once Upon a Time ...
a Fairy Tale Festival.
Designers will incorporate the whimsy and tradition of everyone's
favorite fairy tales, along with the latest design trends, as they trim
their trees into amazing holiday creations.
