Noooo...it isn't a room full of decorated babies, it's an exhibit hall full of beautifully decorated trees! And a great way to support Hiawatha Homes, spend time with family, and get ideas for your own home decorations!

There are so many wonderful stories of the people you help when you help Hiawatha Homes. There's also many many stories about families that visit the Festival of Trees every single year...like this one from Ellen in Plainview...

(Festival Of Trees)

"My mom and dad passed a while ago, so these memories are even sweeter now. We always packed up the whole family in the mini-van and made our way to look at the beautiful trees.

Back then it always seemed to be a snowy Thanksgiving, and looking at all the trees with their twinkling lights, and creative decorations...it just made my heart warm.

We looked forward to it every year, especially when I was old enough to go look at the trees myself. I felt so grown up! One year my brother tried to open a gift under the tree...mom was NOT happy. LOL."

If you've never been to the festival of trees, start the tradition this year. Here's everything you need to know....
