Festival of Trees 2016

In what's become a holiday tradition here in Nashua, NH, the annual Festival of Trees display is on display at the Hunt Memorial Building this month.

Non-profit organizations, businesses, and school groups decorated more than 30 trees in whatever way they choose to showcase their group.

The trees were displayed in the main reading room, small reading room and foyer of what was formerly the city's library. They included a wide range of ornaments from the traditional to the unusual.


Visitors voted on their favorite tree and could place bids to purchase them. Monies from the auctioned trees will be used for preservation of the Hunt Memorial Building.

There is a similar initiative here with Christmas trees done at the Chateau Laurier. I have to photograph them soon.

Oh what fun! All those trees to browse under one roof! The Hotel Roanoke has a tradition of lining their first floor hallways with trees like this. They are all sponsored by a business or groups that decorate them in a theme.

I would enjoy seeing all the different Christmas Trees. Such a nice tradition and happy that it brings in money for the preservation of the Hunt Memorial Building. There are so many creative designs on all those trees.
