An Annual Holiday Tradition – FHN Festival of Trees Events Start Nov. 10

Freeport, Illinois — A Saturday-morning showing of Disney’s Nutcracker and the Four Realms on Nov. 10 will kick off this year’s FHN Festival of Trees events.

The movie is one of five in the FHN Holiday Movie Series that will be presented at 10 a.m. each Saturday through Dec, 8 at the Classic Cinemas Lindo Theatre, 115 S. Chicago Avenue in Freeport. Admission is just $4 (FHN is paying $2 of the $6 ticket price) and seating is limited. All children attending will receive a holiday gift.

The theme of this year’s Festival of Trees is a quote from American author T.A. Barron: Every piece of the universe, even the tiniest little snow crystal, matters somehow. I have a place in the pattern and so do you.

The Festival of Trees includes a host of events for people of all ages, from this year’s CASINO-BLANCA Gala Nov. 16 to a community tree lighting Nov. 18 and the popular Community Festival of Trees on display Dec. 3 – 29 at the Freeport Public Library. (People’s Choice voting runs through Saturday, Dec. 15.)
