Podcast #43- Click here to listen to this week’s podcast- Tree Time!!
It’s finally here! The 2012 Festival of Trees sponsored by the Kennedy Krieger Institute. We have been talking, planning, and preparing for the festival for months. Back in the summer when we created our Christmas bucket lists we added sponsoring a tree for the festival. That dream has now come true. Today’s podcast was recorded yesterday at the Cow Palace on the Maryland State Fairgrounds. After seven hours of tree decorating we discussed the festival, the trees and people we saw, and the whole experience. Listen to hear about zombie trees, alcohol trees, Noah’s tree, a strawberry tree, and more. We’ll be writing all this week about the Festival and our experiences. Check-out the Yule Log’s facebook page to see lots of pictures from our day of decorating.
Be sure to make your weekend plans to include the 2012 Festival of Trees. Our 4-foot entry is titled “A Christmas Greeting” and is decorated with all hand-made ornaments constructed out of old Christmas cards. Our 7-foot entry is titled “I Spy Christmas” and is a puzzle tree with hidden ornaments you can find by following the clues. You can also see hundreds of other decorated trees, wreaths, gingerbread houses, and more decorations. There are crafts, music, a carousel, pony rides, and trains. Santa will be there and so should you. Order you tickets in advance and save- go to festivaloftrees.kennedykrieger.org.
