Festival of the Trees (November 19th – December 9th)
The holiday season kicks off with the Festival of Trees auction, which benefits the United Way of White County. Guests place bids on beautifully decorated Christmas trees and wreaths. The trees and wreaths are awarded to the guest with the highest offer. Not only do these decorations make great souvenirs, but they offer an opportunity to help make a difference in the community. We plan to enter our own tree into this as well.
