Local businesses and civic groups are already busy planning their entries in the 2014 Festival of Trees. This year will be the 7th year that businesses and civic groups have helped local charities through decorating a Christmas tree during the Festival of Trees. “This is a great way for our local businesses to give back to the community through helping our local non-profits,” stated Sharon Crosby, Special Events Coordinator for Toccoa.
The decorated trees will be on display in the Courthouse in conjunction with the 2014 Toccoa ChristmasFest, held the evening of December 5 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm and Saturday, December 6 from 12 noon to 4pm.
Participants must provide a decorated tree, with lights, that will be on display in the Historic Stephens County Courthouse from Friday, December 5 through Saturday December 6.
The public will then cast a vote for their favorite Christmas tree, for a cost of $1 per vote. Each non-profit organization will keep their proceeds. The tree receiving the most votes will win the “grand prize” of $500.
