A festival or a special event is any public gathering where planned activities take place. A festival has one common trait:
It brings people together.
In a recent survey by the Travel Industry AsPACiation, one-fifth of U.S. adults reported attending a festival while traveling 100 or more miles from home. Festivals help raise awareness of any cause related issue and provide community members opportunities to enjoy amenities of the region.
What is the Festival of Trees?
The festival presents a winter wonderland with 20 or more elaborately decorated Christmas trees, a quaint gingerbread village, holiday wreaths and mini-trees, a street of Dickens Village shops on-going childrens activities, wonderful Christmas gift ideas, gifts for purchase, beautifully wrapped presents, and of course, pictures with Santa, plus more exciting new events. All proceeds benefit the Performing Arts Center of Wenatchee.
