The multi-day extravaganza has been filled with unique entertainment and special events including an Opening Night Gala, a popular and family-friendly Reindeer Romp, choral and ballet performances, musical interludes and visits by Santa Claus. The Festival of Trees holiday tradition is Council of 101’s gift to the community to raise funds for the Orlando Museum of Art and its many art education programs, available to all ages, exhibits and expansions.
