The 30th annual Fantasy of Trees exhibit is here to brighten up the 2018 holiday season!

During the Fantasy of Trees exhibit, running Nov. 23 - Jan. 3, 2019, businesses, organizations and individuals put up lavishly decorated Christmas trees in the Stuhr Building. From the beautiful to the traditional to the whimsical and everything in between, this event showcases Hall County's creativity and decorative spirit. A free reception for this event will be from 1-3 pm on Sunday, December 2nd. 

The trees will be judged once the show opens and more information will be posted soon. The "People's Choice" winner will be selected after Stuhr's "Christmas Past & Present" event running November 30, Dec. 1, 7, 8 & 9. 

For years, Fantasy of Trees has showcased the creativity of our community and this year everyone has really outdone themselves. The exhibit features over 90(!) trees ranging from the beautifully simple to the ridiculously elaborate. Each tree is beautiful and every group who participated did a wonderful job this year. For more information, call (308) 385-5316.
