The411: There's one event that takes place every year that puts you into the holiday spirit. It's the Festival of Trees & Lights. The proceeds benefit Kosair Children's Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Years ago, I worked with a lady who was passionate about this event. Her name was Ruth and she would educate us about the event and why it was so important to be apart of it. The event is November 12th-14th at the Louisville Slugger Field.
If you have never attended this family-friendly festival just imagine hundreds of trees beautifully decorated. There's also wreaths, handcrafted holiday items, a model train display, a sweet shop and a gift shop.
The festival is also raffling off a 2011 Sam Swope BMW or a $30,000 cash option. That drawing will take place on Sunday, November 14th at 5:30pm.
General admission for children 12 and younger and senior citizens are $3.00. Admission for adults are $5.00.
