Here is your chance to contribute your creativity and decorate a tree to be viewed by visitors over the holidays. We encourage you to be as creative as you can be, and to share your story with your decorated tree. We have a number of six-foot and over artificial trees available on a first-come basis. Or, you may choose to bring your own artificial tree of any size.
