Racine's Festival of Trees
The Racine Downtown association does a Festival of Trees fundraiser downtown each year, and we usually visit. Since the roads had mostly been cleared, and snow had stopped blowing about, we decided to go down yesterday evening. It was lovely, if nearly empty.
They changed the venue this year from Festival Hall to Memorial Hall. Good move. There's lots more room, and the place is already attractive in that old fashioned hall sort of way. Lots of pillars and balconies. But the trees are the star of the show. Well, they are if you discount Santa. And speaking of discount Santas... Zack had his first Santa pic taken. He went about a minute without crying, then burst into tears. See flickr for individual photos, as always.
