The Big Bend Habitat for Humanity Festival Trees is moving to Goodwood! This year's even is free to the public on Saturday and Sunday, November 16th-17th, with a ticketed Preview Reception on Friday evening, November 15th. Now in its fifth year, the Festival has become a much anticipated holiday event. Beautifully decorated holiday trees are created and donated by businesses, churches, civic organizations, schools, scout groups, and individuals throughout the community, then auctioned off during a silent auction that continues until the Festival closes. All proceeds from the sale of the trees directly support the mission of Big Bend Habitat for Humanity, which provides "a hand up, not a hand out" for low-income residents of Leon and Gadsden Counties. Arrangements can be made for delivery of trees purchased for a nominal additional price.
Local musicians will provide entertainment through the day on Saturday and Sunday, with a special visit from Santa on Saturday.
