 Christmas Grove and Tree Decorating Contest

The Elizabethtown-White Lake Area Chamber of Commerce and Cape Fear Valley Health are sponsoring a Christmas Tree Decorating Contest as part of Christmas at the Farmers Market. Individual, families and organizations are encouraged to reserve and decorate a live Christmas Tree by end-of-business on December 3.

The theme of this year’s contest is “Our Future Looks Bright”. Participants are encouraged to decorate their tree based on the theme. There is a limit of 10 trees. Sponsorship and reservation of a tree is $20, which will benefit the Empty Stocking Fund. ***All trees have been reserved***

On December 4 and 11, visitors to the Farmers Market will be able to vote on their favorite tree for $1, which will also go to the Empty Stocking Fund. At 2:30pm on Saturday, Dec. 11, the votes will be counted and the first, second and third place prizes will be announced.
