Milton, FL – Santa Rosa Kids’ House (SRKH) will host its Fourth Annual Festival

of Trees on Saturday, November 23rd. This year the event will take place at the

beautifully restored Imogene Theater at 6866 Caroline Street in Downtown

Milton. The Imogene will be open for tours on Saturday from 10am to 3pm. On

Saturday evening at 6:30 PM the Festival of Trees will conclude with a Christmas

Celebration to include silent and live auctions of the decorated trees, wreaths,

door designs, and table centerpieces. Last year over $35,000 was raised. This

year SRKH hopes to raise at least $50,000.

Festival of Trees is Santa Rosa Kids’ House’s biggest fundraising event of the

season. The community is encouraged to join us to view dozens of decorated

trees and holiday decorations donated by local businesses, churches, civic

organizations and individuals. Everyone will have a chance to join the online

auction of several of the beautiful pieces on display. These can be viewed and

bid on online via the Santa Rosa Kids’ House website. Tickets to view trees and

wreaths inside the Imogene are $5 for adults and free for children 12 years of

age and under.

This is truly a celebration for the whole family. Santa will be available for pictures.

Children young and old can enjoy face painting, cookie decorating activities,

Christmas crafts, and hot chocolate. All these activities are free of charge. There

will also be a craft fair, “Festival Market Place,” Saturday, November 23rd from

8am to 3pm on the Imogene lawn with lots of great holiday shopping

opportunities. If you are interested in having a booth, please call Adair Cotton at
