ELY- The much-anticipated Northwoods Partners Festival of Trees is at long last upon us. With the generous assistance of our community of supporters, and a little holiday magic, the lobby of the Grand Ely Lodge will once again be transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with beautifully-decorated Christmas trees, wreaths, and a holiday boutique. This year’s holiday event will run Nov. 25 through Dec. 5.
The magic begins at dawn on Thanksgiving morning, when the trees will be lit for the first time; they will remain lit until noon on Dec. 5. Bidding on the decorated trees and wreaths begins on Thanksgiving evening at 5 p.m. The Holiday Boutique also opens at 5 p.m. and is full of beautiful hand-crafted holiday must-haves and giftable items. Back by popular demand are Buy it Now items and the Chairs for Care. Each chair has been designed by local artists and crafters. Bidding and the boutique close at noon on Sunday, Dec. 5.
While this holiday magic lasts only 11 days, it continues throughout the year in the hearts of those who participate and support the Festival of Trees. Most of all, the magic continues in the lives of area seniors who are helped by Northwoods Partners every day.
If you have any questions regarding Northwoods Partners Festival of Trees, please contact Lisa Porthan at 218-365-8019.
Please note that due to COVID restrictions and the ongoing positive caseload in our area, there will not be a Thanksgiving evening lighting ceremony this year.
