Dec. 4: Montgomery Festival of Trees

This year’s event will be held on Sunday, December 4th at 5:00 p.m. Visitors get to see Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive on a fire truck, enjoy free cookies and cocoa and listen to area school children perform some of their favorite Christmas songs. This year, the event will be even bigger and better, as visitors will also be able to enjoy many beautiful trees decorated by local businesses and vote on their favorite.

The new Festival of Trees is an opportunity for local businesses to join in the festivities by displaying a decorated tree in Village Hall, promote their business to hundreds of area residents, and possibly earn the coveted title of “Favorite Decorated Tree” in the Village. Trees will be on display on December 4th at the annual Tree Lighting event, and will remain on display for community viewing and voting through December 16th. All trees will adorn the halls and lobby of the Village Hall. There is no charge to participate.

The Festival of Trees provides a great opportunity for businesses to reach out to the community. Businesses are encouraged to decorate their tree in a creative way that promotes the business and the products or services offered. Local businesses that have already signed up to participate include Orchard Road Animal Hospital, Montgomery-Countryside Fire Protection District, Coffman Truck Sales, Harris Bank and Schafer’s Greenhouses.

Businesses interested in providing a tree for the Festival of Trees can call Ruth Maloy 630-896-8080 x 1116 for additional information and an application form. Space is limited and is being offered on a first-come, first served basis.
