FOLEY - The city of Foley invites merchants, businesses, individuals and local groups to help set Heritage Park aglow by decorating a live tree to brighten the Christmas Village. The first ten entries will be supplied with a free live tree to decorate. The trees should be set up for display in Heritage Park by Wednesday, Dec. 5, in time for judging on Dec. 6, according to Beverly Manley, events planner with the city of Foley.
“Trees will be judged on originality, creative use of materials and overall appearance,” said Manley. Winners will be announced during the Christmas in the Park tree lighting ceremony on Friday, Dec. 7. Entry forms, including criteria for the tree decorating contest, may be downloaded at www.visitfoley.org, www.cityoffoley.org or requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling the city of Foley at 251-943-1300.
Merchants or local groups are encouraged to participate by selecting a theme to advertise or promote their business or organization or just to celebrate the season. “This is a fun opportunity for families or co-workers to get creative and show their Christmas spirit, and an exciting way to brighten our Christmas Tree Lane as well as the hearts of young and old this season,” Manley said.
Christmas in the Park is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 7, beginning at 6 p.m.
