The Museum’s Annual Festival of Trees has been hugely successful this year, with record numbers of visitors coming to see the festive displays and more decorated trees than ever before.
At the opening of the festival, awards were given out to several trees. Waypoint Insurance was named the Most Elegant Tree, Campbell River McDonald’s scooped up the award for the Most Whimsical Tree, and the Most Sustainable Tree Award was given to the Coast Discovery Inn and Rob Fuccenecco of Peak Mortgages – NI Mortgages for their tree decorated by the Midnight Shuttles Spinning and Weaving Guild.
Over the last weeks, visitors have had the opportunity to vote for their favourite tree to win the People’s Choice Award. The award was given to Cermaq Canada Ltd. for their tree Cermaq for the Wild. The tree features an assortment of beautiful hand-felted wildlife, and the attention to detail on the styling of the tree extends beyond the branches and into the area at the base of the tree.
There is still time to come see the Festival of Trees. It is open daily from 10-5 in December (Closed Christmas Day and Boxing Day) and admission to see the trees is free. The Museum is located at 470 Island Highway.
