Get in the holiday spirit at the 2013 We Care Trim-A-Tree Festival!

Where can you see 80 beautifully decorated Christmas trees and wreaths in one place?  The We Care Trim-A-Tree Festival!  Originally started in 1993, this event has become an annual tradition in Kokomo for many families, businesses, and organizations.

The display is located at the Kokomo Town Center (1700 East Boulevard Street) and is open now through November 17, 2013.  Hours are Monday – Thursday 10am-7pm, Friday & Saturday 10am-9pm, and Sunday 12-6pm.  Enjoy the sights and sounds of the holidays, and vote for your favorite!  Admission is free.

All trees and wreaths will be auctioned off at 3pm on November 17th.  Proceeds will benefit We Care.  Below are a few of my favorites from this year’s festival!

20th Annual We Care Trim-A-Tree Festival Going On Now!

20th Annual We Care Trim-A-Tree Festival

The 20th Annual We Care Trim-A-Tree Festival is going on now in Kokomo.  This event marks the start of the holiday season for many (and starts the holiday spirit stirring in me!)  This year, 80 beautifully decorated Christmas trees and wreaths are on display inside the Kokomo Town Center Mall (enter at back entrance on west side of mall.)  I went to visit this week and always stand amazed looking at the detail of each one!

Each tree and wreath has been carefully decorated with a specific theme by local businesses and organizations in Kokomo & Howard County.  You can visit the tree display now through November 11, 2012 and vote for your favorite by tossing coins in the buckets.  Hours are: Monday-Thursday 10 am-7 pm, Friday-Saturday 10 am-9 pm & Sunday 12-6 pm.  The tree auction will be held on Sunday, November 11 at 3 pm.  Hundreds will gather to watch and bid as all of the trees and wreaths are auctioned off with proceeds benefiting We Care.  For more information, visit www.WeCareOnline.com.

Here are some of the photos I took this week!
