The 30th annual Memorial’s Festival of Trees will be held from November 23rd until December 1st at the Orr Building on the Illinois State Fairgrounds. The theme for this year’s event is “Jingle Bells and Seashells” and Program Director, Amanda Johnson says that this theme should whisk you away to beaches despite the cold temps outside.



Johnson says this event is for everyone and could help give you ideas for your own Christmas tree.


With over 200 decorated trees and wreaths, there will be plenty of activities for the whole family including the Gingerbread Village, Little Elves’ Workshop, Candy Cane Express Train, North Pole Toy Shop, the Holiday Kitchen, and of course, Santa.
