The Enchanted Forest Festival of Trees

Enchanted Forest_Logo_outside_tag

The Enchanted Forest Festival of Trees, benefiting Le Bonheur Children's Hospital, will run from Saturday, November 23 - December 31, 2019 at the Pink Palace Museum.  

Children of all ages will be charmed by the animated characters set in the magical snowy setting of Enchanted Forest. Teddy bears beckon, elves are busy at work and penguins play in the snow.  Santa cheerfully greets guests at the end of the Forest and poses for holiday photos.  A perfect holiday tradition for the whole family to enjoy!

You'll love strolling through the avenues of beautifully decorated trees which glisten throughout the Pink Palace Museum. The trees have been generously sponsored by area businesses and individuals and you're sure to find a favorite. Thousands of twinkling lights will dazzle your youngster as will the miniature train chugging through the Gingerbread Village and the charming array of furry Penguin Pals in the Penguin Pond.
