Festival of Trees logoThe 15th annual Festival of Trees to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley will open November 16 at The Centre in Centre Pointe.

A visit to the Festival is a great way to kick-off the holiday season. “We are very excited to be working on the 15th Festival of Trees,” said Festival Founders Gary and Myrna Condie.

Not only can you view the many beautiful and elaborately decorated trees which are available for purchase, but you can also purchase small tabletop trees, holiday wreaths, and charming one-of-a-kind gingerbread houses.

Large trees range in height from six to nine feet and many come with gifts including furniture, event tickets, wine, jewelry and more.

“All proceeds from this wonderful event will directly support afterschool programming for local youth,” said Matthew Nelson, chief executive officer for the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley.

Full details on the event including costs and parking can be found at www.scvbgc.org.

Fun for the Whole Family
Festival of Trees Co-Chairs G. Marshall and Kathleen Hann are planning something for everyone at the festival. Children will find a variety of fun crafts and activities in the Kid’s Corner and can take a photo with Santa Claus (additional activity ticket required). View trees while dancing the night away on Thursday, November 16 at the Jingle Jam Swing Dance. See up close and personal, as well as on stage, magic at the Holiday Hocus Pocus on Friday, November 17 (Tickets $10).

Check the festival schedule at www.scvbgc.org for all dates and times. Singers, musicians, dancers and more will be featured on the stage throughout the festival, and strolling magicians will be on hand to dazzle the crowd with some amazing tricks.

Toy Drive
Bring an unwrapped toy valued at $25 or more to the Festival and receive a ticket to Six Flags Magic Mountain. Toys will be distributed to children and teens of the Boys & Girls Club of SCV this holiday season. Santa himself will visit Club children and he needs your help filling his bag. Gifts for children 7 years and older preferred. The number of tickets is limited and good for early 2018.
