Don't Miss Garrett County's Festival of Trees this Thanksgiving Weekend!

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, the holiday festivities are getting underway for Deep Creek and the surrounding areas in Garrett County!  Whether you’re a permanent resident, or have a vacation home on Deep Creek Lake you’ll enjoy the holiday cheer that this time of year brings.  Family, friends and neighbors celebrate by hosting parties, taking in the decorations of homes on Deep Creek Lake and take advantage of the special events offered throughout the community.
One of the highlights of the season is the Festival of Trees which is taking place this weekend, November 25-26 at the Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall in McHenry.  Although this is a new location than years past, the same excitement and fun for all is sure to be a great kick off of the holidays!  
As the Coldwell Banker Deep Creek Realty team, we enjoy pointing out the special events and happenings that create such an excellent quality of life here on Deep Creek Lake.  If you’ve been to the Festival of Trees in years past, or are just visiting friends and family for Thanksgiving, we hope you’re able to take part in this holiday festival!  Here’s an idea of what you can expect!

Friday, November 25 from 9am-8pm
Saturday, November 26 from 10am-8pm
- The Festival of Trees is a two day event that allows you to stroll through decorated trees, wreaths, centerpieces and other inspiring holiday decorations while experiencing the sites and sounds of Christmas!  Take pictures with Santa, sing at Kris Kringle’s Karaoke, decorate cookies in Santa’s Bakery, play Reindeer games or navigate through Frosty’s Funland.  Silent auctions take place on both days where you can bid on your favorite tree, holiday decorations and gifts!  Have breakfast with Santa on Friday ($10) or enjoy live entertainment by local gymnastics and dance companies on Saturday.  This fun filled weekend is the ideal way to get in the holiday spirit, so don’t miss out!  View more information regarding tickets and daily schedules at the Festival of Trees website.
We hope you are able to gather your family, friends and Deep Creek Lake neighbors and take part in this great event!  The Festival of Trees also is a great opportunity to give back to the community as all proceeds go to benefit the Garrett County Dove Center.  This non-profit is an agency that helps victims of domestic and sexual victimization to develop self worth and be able to take control of their lives.  Since it’s the 20th anniversary of the Dove Center; if you purchase a ticket for Friday, you can attend on Saturday for free!  
The holidays on Deep Creek Lake are a special time of year and we hope you enjoy all that this festive season has to offer!  Feel free to contact our team here at Coldwell Banker Deep Creek Realty with any questions about the Deep Creek Real Estate market.  We look forward to hearing from you!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
