News release from the Embassy Theatre:

31st Annual Festival of Trees brings old and new together

(October 28, 2015) – Warm Winter Wishes is the theme for the 31st annual Festival of Trees from Nov. 25 to Dec. 2. More than 55 beautifully decorated trees, Santa Land and the Animated Holiday windows will once again be a part of the festival with two new events being added for 2015.

The first new event will be on Monday, Nov. 30. People love to take family photos in front of the trees, so this year the Embassy is offering a night when families can take as many pictures as they want because the crowd will be limited to 100 families. Tickets for Family Photo Night are $50 per family and can be purchased from the Embassy box office. The second new event is on Dec. 2 from 5 to 9 p.m. featuring the Fort Wayne Children’s Choir’s seven ensembles leading the audience in many of the season’s favorite holiday songs at 7 p.m. Visitors will be able to tour the Festival of Trees before and after the show.
