‘Tis the Season to Give and Celebrate

Stateline, NV – The sixth annual Barton Health Festival of Trees and Lights will take place December 3 through 7 at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe in Stateline, Nevada.

Locals and visitors alike are invited to attend this family-friendly, holiday festival. The Festival of Trees and Lights is the Barton Foundation’s largest fundraiser and all proceeds support the health and wellbeing of the South Lake Tahoe Community.

“The Festival of Trees and Lights is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the holiday season while giving back to our community,” says Kindle Craig, executive director of the Barton Foundation. “This December, all funds raised at the festival will benefit Barton’s Hospice programs and services.”

Harrah’s showroom will be transformed into a winter wonderland with trees and wreaths decorated by school children and local designers. Throughout each day, attendees can watch holiday performances, shop for holiday gifts at Mrs. Claus’ Gift Shop, and bid in the silent auction. Children can write to Santa and make crafts at the Gingerbread Junction, or get a family photo with the jolly old man himself!

For adults looking for an elegant night out, Tahoe’s deluxe event, The Gala, will take place on Saturday, December 6. The black-tie optional affair includes a four-course dinner, dancing, and a live and silent auction.

Children, along with their parents, are invited to bring their teddy bears to the Teddy Bear Brunch on Sunday, December 7. They can also stop by the Teddy Bear hospital any time during the festival for an animal-friendly check-up.

Entrance to Festival of Trees and Lights for public viewing is $3 for children or seniors and $5 for adults. To view a full event line-up, go to www.FestivalofTreesLakeTahoe.com.
