The magic of Christmas lights up in Hodgenville with the opening of the annual Main Street Festival of Trees, which continues from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Saturday. The festival is located in the Lincoln Museum Community Room on Lincoln Square.
The public is invited to attend as many times as they like to vote for their favorite tree or wreath so the winner or designated charity can take home $25.
The trees, many of them given a second life by their sponsors, are provided by nonprofit agencies and charities or by individuals or businesses as fundraisers for a charitable group or purpose. There are table trees, medium sized trees, large trees and tiny trees. There are wreaths of all sizes, colors and themes. There are decorations to be recycled and there will be gift items sponsored by the Hodgenville Woman’s Club.
Bids on the silent auction for all items close at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 20, following a chili supper from 5-7 p.m. provided by the Hodgenville Woman’s Club. The only cost for attending is $5 for food. Christmas music will be provided by Alice Burton and Jerry Williams.
