Festival of Trees

Festival of Trees

The Pink Palace Museum's mezzanine is a wonderful showcase for the Festival of Trees. Guests get to stroll through the sparkling avenue to see the dazzling trees which have been decorated by community volunteers. Some are professionally decorated, while others are decorated by volunteers, church groups, and even children. Every tree is guaranteed to evoke the holiday spirit.
