Have you been searching for a festive date night idea, a kid-friendly, holiday-themed attraction to bring the entire family, or just a way to give back? santa 2  Extra Special People’s second annual Festival of Trees is the answer! The Festival of Trees will take place December 12 through the VIP Reception on December 18 as part of Christmas at the Classic Center.

45 Christmas trees will be sponsored and decorated by local businesses and organizations, each exploding with their own flair and style.  This is a terrific holiday opportunity to experience the magic, lights, and ambiance that comes only with the Christmas season.  Bidding on the sponsored Christmas trees can be done throughout The Festival of Trees, however the final bidding ceremony and silent auction will take place on December 18 at 6:30 p.m.  Tickets for the VIP Reception can be purchased at the Classic Center box office for $25.santa

Adding to the list of jolly Christmas activities this season, Christmas at the Classic Center is featuring Breakfast with Santa, where you and your family can enjoy a delicious breakfast all while hanging out and getting your picture taken with the big guy (each participant gets a complimentary photo with Santa to take home!).  Taking place on Saturday, December 13 OR Saturday, December 20, Breakfast with Santa is an opportunity to create a special Christmas memory with the child in your life!

As a special opportunity for our participants, ESP will be hosting a day made for our families. There will be ice-skating at 11:45 and lunch at 1pm.

Making all of this Christmas cheer possible are our volunteers! We’ll have opportunities throughout the festival to volunteer from managing the trees and helping out Santa to sharing the ESP story.

Proceeds for both The Festival of Trees and Breakfast with Santa will benefit ESP so make sure to buy your tickets today!  More information about the Festival of Trees, volunteering, and Breakfast with Santa can be found here: https://extraspecialpeople.com/festival-of-trees/.
