(85)

The Festival of Trees and Trains is the largest annual fundraiser of the Paramount Woman’s Association. To put it simply, the event was created to support the Education Department of the Paramount Arts Center, which provides an enriching, creative and theatrical outlet for our community. The ingenious women of the Paramount Woman’s Association found the perfect way to raise funds for the Paramount AND give the community an ideal family event. The ten day festival brings visits with Santa, Free crafts, photos with characters, great snacks, local choirs and entertainers, holiday gift shops, holiday décor and, of course, the trees! Regardless, if you are one of the hundreds of decorators, hundreds of volunteers, or thousands of visitors - you will find that Festival of Trees and Trains is much more than a display of holiday décor. Imagine the community fellowship during our five day set-up, the pleasure of being with your family and friends as you listen to local performers or watch your child dance on stage amidst the fantastic holiday trees, beside the awesome holiday train layout, within the historic Paramount Arts Center. So many people look forward to the event, speaking of the family tradition and telling the stories of “one year at the festival when…” The festival has been a part of us all for 35 years, crossing generations and making memories that will last a lifetime. Perhaps this is what makes the festival so valuable to our community. We invite you to join us for this most spectacular holiday event, during the week surrounding Thanksgiving. The Paramount Woman’s Association looks forward to seeing you here!
