Once the Thanksgiving turkey is eaten and the pumpkin pie is gone, it’s time to turn up the notch on the holiday season. And no Colorado city kicks off the holidays better than Greeley.
Head north after your Thanksgiving gathering to participate in Greeley’s 29th Annual Festival of Trees. This winter wonderland competes with the North Pole as beautifully decorated trees, holiday entertainment, kids’ activities, door prizes, Hearts & Tails Carriage rides, a silent auction, and more take place November 24th through December 2nd.
Every year, the Festival of Trees presents a forest of beautifully decorated trees, whimsical to elaborate, each with its own unique theme. At the end of the Festival, the coveted People’s Choice, St. Nick’s Pick, and Mrs. C’s Favorite Tree awards are presented to the businesses, individuals, or organizations whose trees are voted overall favorites. There’s also Candy Cane Lane, a showcase of evergreens adorned with ornaments created by children who compete for the Kids’ Choice ribbon. Come to Greeley and vote for your favorite!
Special events during this nine-day celebration include Whoville Holiday Seussabration, Silver Bells Social, Sip & Shop Ladies Night Out, and Teddy Bear Bash. Throughout the festival, you can also bid on seasonal items, such as trees, wreaths, Santas, snowmen, and year-round items like jewelry, in the silent auction!
Take the entire family to participate in one of Northern Colorado’s most cherished holiday traditions. It’s a spectacular celebration for everyone. Visit www.GreeleyGov.com for more information.
