ENCHANTED FOREST

Fall is definitely in the air and that means that the festive season is just around the corner. Help us transform the Dow Centennial Centre, Sherritt Cultural Pavilion, Fort Saskatchewan Public Library and City Hall into beautiful Enchanted Forests.

Local community organizations and businesses are invited to submit a decorated tree to the exhibit.  This year we will have a panel of judges who will award prizes in 5 exciting categories; Most Beautiful, Most Merry & Bright, Most Unique, Best Use of a Theme, and People’s Choice.

This event has grown in participation each year, and we have limited space for all of the beautiful trees.  Because this event is so popular, we are asking participants to register on a “first come, first served” basis.  Therefore, we ask you to register by November 1st, 2017.
