Christmas in the Fort 2021 - First Batch B.Johnson-179 (1)
We would like to invite your club, organization, or business to decorate a holiday tree with a theme of your choosing for display in the BoatHouse on the Legacy of the Lakes Museum campus during Christmas in the Fort (November 24). There is no fee to participate and the trees will be viewed by thousands over the Thanksgiving weekend, where people will vote for their favorite tree.
We are continuing our new portion of the event to encourage visiting our downtown merchants and extend the reach of this event. Each storefront may display a decorated and themed tree in their Broadway Street business (registration still required). We will have viewing and voting along with donation options online for these trees.
Please let us know if you plan on participating by signing up using the link by November 17:
