Festival of Trees

The Arts Council of Lincoln County is having their Festival of Trees going on right now in Lincolnton, North Carolina.  You may ask, yes, but why is this appearing on The Pa-Paw Patch's website...well, we're in it!  Ms. Jenna (one of our four-year-old teachers) did a great job coordinating and creating our tree.  She wrapped a wire tomato cage with billows of paper, and each child in our center made a green handprint that was cut out and used to decorate the tree.  The four-/five-year-olds made red and white paper chains which hang down from the top.  The finished tree is beautiful and has gotten lots of compliments from visitors to the Festival of Trees.

Now, we're extending the invitation to you!  The last weekend for the Festival of Trees is THIS weekend, December 20th, 21st, and 22nd.  The Festival runs from 5:00 to 9:00 pm on Friday and Saturday, and 2:00 to 5:00 pm on Sunday.  It's in the former Carolinas Medical Center-Lincoln building at 200 Gamble Drive, Lincolnton.

But the fun thing is, Kid's Night is this Friday night, December 20th!  Admission is $5.00 for adults, $4.00 for students and seniors, and FREE for children under 5!  Bring canned goods for $1.00 off admission.  Kid's Night will have a Christmas train the kids can ride, a magician, storytelling, and a visit from SANTA!  Visit the Arts Council's website for more information at

While there, make sure you see the gingerbread houses made by our three-, four-, and five-year-olds that are on display!

There is also a spot where local artists are selling their crafts and art.  Ms. Jenna has a display of paper goods (she makes cards, bows, and other paper crafts), and she decorated a tree with her paper art.  Be sure to see it as well!

We're excited to be part of The Festival of Trees and hope you can make it out to see our tree!  What a great way to gear up for Christmas!
