Tree Lighting Festival at Smolak Farms
Between the smell of fresh-from-the-oven baked goods and hot cocoa, twinkling lights, array of homemade gingerbread houses and the buzz of holiday cheer, there’s no better place south of the North Pole to celebrate the holidays. This year the tradition continues when Smolak Farms kicks off the holiday season with their annual Tree Lighting Festival.
The day will be filled with seasonal treats and activities for kids of all ages. From 10AM to 5PM, families are invited to peruse thousands of Smolak Farms’ pre-cut Christmas trees. With the selection of trees including Fraser and Balsam Fir, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect tree for your annual star topper while bringing that pine scent into your home.
In addition to the pre-cut trees, Smolak Farms also has a wide variety of “Choose and Cut” trees to choose from throughout the farm. Varieties include; Fraser Fir, Balsam Fir, Douglas Fir, Concolor Fir and a few minor varieties. Choose and Cut trees is open from 10am - 3pm.
After you’ve found that perfect tree, choose from an assortment of wreaths, holiday gifts, gingerbread houses, decorations and baked goods while children partake in a day full of activities in Santa’s Workshop including: cookie decorating, holiday crafts, and coloring books!
Throughout the afternoon, Christmas music will be playing the sounds of holiday cheer, and all visitors are invited to board Smolak’s Roaming Railroad train from 10AM to 3PM for a special ride throughout the farm with Mrs. Claus herself for $3.00 per child! At 4:30PM everyone will gather around Smolak Farms’ very own Christmas tree with a free cup of delicious hot cocoa when Santa Claus makes a very special appearance for the annual tree lighting.
Come for the trees and leave with timeless memories! Don’t miss this memorable holiday experience for whole the family!
