New for 2015-----
In 2015 we will be awarding the best overall decorated tree with a special award, so feel free to go all-out in your decorating! We will not be placing the white snow cloth in our forest area this year, so please feel free to bring a tree skirt to help enhance your efforts.We will also be paying close attention to any offensive materials used in your decoration, so please remember these rules: - No banners are permitted on, or on the ground around trees. - No coupons or tear-off advertisements are permitted on trees. - No offensive language or decor may be used in tree decoration.
Decorating and Tear-down Days: Decorating Days for 2015 will be on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 24th and 25th between the hours of 9am and 5pm. Tear-down will take place on Monday, January 4th - all ornaments left after January 4th will be recycled or disposed of.
Tips for Decorators: - Use weather proof materials. We get our share of wind and rain, so please make sure your decor will hold up to the elements. - Be sure to "tie" your ornaments to the tree branches so they do not come loose during the run of our event. - Bring a tree skirt - Do not use expensive ornaments or decor as we are not responsible for any damage or stolen items that "The Grinch" or any other "Grinch-like" may try to acquire. - You can bring your own lights (make sure they are LED) to add to the decor of your tree. - Do not bring any ornaments made of food as the "creatures" of the park tend to enjoy them too much.
