Northwoods Festival of Trees

12.03.2011


Today I took Zoey to the Northwoods Festival of Trees in  Manitowish Waters.  It was the perfect thing to help put us both in the holiday spirit.  


There was face painting done by none other than our good friend Vicky Meier (whom I was blessed to have met at our local scrapbook store while I was working and teaching there).


When given a choice between a snowman, a snowflake, a reindeer or a snow flower, she chose snow flower.


Area residents and businesses created and decorated trees, wreaths or other winter/holiday items and had them on display for people to enjoy.  Some of them then are to be raffled off at the end of the day.  Here is Zoey sitting in front of Vicky's Pooh Bear tree.


Here are some photos of some of the displays...


There is music there all day too, while we were there we got to enjoy some beautiful harp playing by this young woman.


One of my favorite trees was this tree decorated with all these adorable handmade mice.  There were bakers, trick-or-treaters, and even a Packer fan mouse but I thought this little partier was too cute!  He even has a case of beer!


Super classy and old time feeling wreath...







Such a special event!  There were also many sweet treats and some hot cocoa to enjoy...no pictures of that I guess because we were too busy enjoying them!  All proceeds of this event go towards supporting the Frank B. Koller public library in Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin.
