Join Olympic Medical Center Foundation for the Festival of Trees Opening Ceremonies event on Wednesday, November 23 at 5 pm, outside of the main entrance of Vern Burton Community Center to enjoy Spectacular Christmas Displays that were donated by Microsoft.
The LED-lit “ornaments” will be turned on -- which will include performances by the Port Angeles Symphony, Ballet Workshop, and Ghostlight Productions. There are a limited number of tickets available that will include covered seating, access to view the decorated trees before or after the ceremonies, and a pre-event reception. Tickets must be purchased to enter Vern Burton for the reception and tree viewing.
There will also be uncovered standing-room viewing areas that will be free of charge.
Following the ceremony, Opening Ceremony ticket purchasers will be allowed access to view the 50 decorated trees inside Vern Burton that will be auctioned/raffled/sold during the Festival over the Thanksgiving weekend.
“We are extremely fortunate to be the recipient of these displays,” said OMC Foundation Executive Director Bruce Skinner. “I think people are going to say ‘wow’ when they are lit, as they will include bigger-than-life ornaments, fountains, and a Christmas tree."
“They will come to life with the performances of three of the Peninsula’s incredible arts organizations,” Lindsay Fox, Chair of the Festival, said. The Foundation was able to obtain the displays through its participation with the Washington Festivals and Events Foundation, where Microsoft is also involved.
All ages are welcome.
Tickets are non-refundable.
