FAMILY NIGHT AT FESTIVAL OF TREES IS BACK WITH MORE THAN EVER
Defrost the car, bundle the kids, pack-up grandma and head to Family Night at the Festival of Trees Friday, December 13, 2013 at Memorial Hall at Boundary County Fairgrounds.
Family Night starts at 4 p.m. and lasts until 7 p.m. Some (those who live in the South) might argue that 4 p.m. is afternoon, not night, but we who live in the North know when night begins. It begins at 4 p.m.
Santa knows also! He will be the man sitting in a corner at Memorial Hall in a warm, large, red suit with a full beard the color of the elusive white caribou. He says very little. Usually short sentences such as, “Young man, what would you like for Christmas?” followed by a “Ho! Ho! Ho!”. It is much the same response given the child by their parents when the child boldly proclaims his coveted Christmas present of the year.
All the decorated Christmas trees will be in lighted and in full glory. With over 800 lights twinkling on each tree, Memorial Hall has become Christmas Land. Trees, stockings and wreaths are cleverly decorated giving mom and dad ideas for their own trees. Children are awed by the sheer number of decorations on each tree and the presents underneath the green boughs.
All night long, Christmas songs and instrumentals by local musicians provide background music.
A new addition this year is the craft’s table where children can create a crafts project to take home.
Children and adults a like always enjoy the beautifully decorated Christmas Cookies furnished by Boundary Community Hospital’s Nutritional Services Department.
Following Family Night, the next night is Festival of Trees Gala where the trees and all the donated items will be auctioned to the highest bidder.
Cost for admission is $5 per family or canned goods for the Ministerial Association’s Christmas Food Baskets that distributed in the community each Christmas.
