♥ Festival of Trees & Lights ♥

The 21st Annual Festival of Trees & Lights was held this weekend at Louisville Slugger Field. The festival continues through the week and concludes with the Snow Ball gala next Saturday night. It may seem a little early in the season for it, but it was still fun to go out and see all the trees! It was even better that the weather turned quite a bit cooler today. It definitely put me in the holiday spirit! I may have to go watch White Christmas now... ;-)

There were hundreds of Christmas trees and wreaths of all sizes decorated by citizens of Louisville. Some trees were decorated in a very classic manner...red, green and gold...but most trees had different themes...G.I. Joe, Disney Princesses, musical instruments, Hershey's, butterflies... The trees are displayed and put up for auction with proceeds from the event going to the Kosair Children's Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

There were also activities for the kiddos...magicians, arts and crafts, face painting, build-your-own gingerbread houses, and pictures with Santa! In addition, some local children's dancing and singing groups were scheduled to perform throughout the day, but unfortunately I did not stay long enough to catch one.

Here are some of my photos from the event!

First things first...must get coffee!

There was a fun model train setup near the entrance. I love miniatures!

There were also several beautiful handcrafted doll houses for sale. Check out the price tag on the big one!!!

A magic show for the kiddos.

And gingerbread houses!


Dad wandering around. No doubt getting into some trouble! :-)

There was also a multicultural holiday display spotlighting the traditions of Kwanzaa and Hanukkah.

We stepped into Browning's Brewery and Restaurant for just a second before heading home.
