The Festival of Trees marks the official start to the Holiday season. Its a magical event annually held by the Festival of Trees Inc., a nonprofit organization in the Merrimack Valley.

Companies and families donate a tree, dress it in over the top decorations, and pack it with presents. Hundreds of trees are lined up and bid on during a two week period.

We thought why not get involved in a good festive cause? A RadioBDC tree has a nice ring to it right?Tree 4.JPG

Although we love our tree (and hope it gets lots of bids) we couldn't help but stroll through the rows of trees and snap some pics of our favorites.

Lego mania! Wonder how long it took to make that helicopter?! That takes skill.

Okay, this may be as girly as it gets but a LIPGLOSS tree?! May or may not have put 20 ticket bids in for this one.

Wine and Holiday celebrations go hand in hand. This tree was gorgeous, and the tree skirt made of wine corks was breathtaking...wonder how many bottles it took?!

The festival is going on until Saturday, December 1st so you still have time to come by and bid on the RadioBDC tree. Good Luck!
